From the Dev Team

Hello from the Metron PM and Engineering Team Over the last few months, you may have read a series of blogs written by the Metron Product Management and Engineering teams on CyberSecurity and Analytics and the role that Big Data / Hadoop / HDP plays in this space. In December 2015, James Sirota, Director of Security Solutions […]

I recently discussed the future of data with Arun Murthy, one of the founders of Hortonworks.   The good news is that, not only is the technology available, but Hortonworks customers are already getting competitive advantage from their data right now.   The dream that Arun and the other founders had when they created Hortonworks of […]

Hortonworks launched SmartSense in 2015 to help customers quickly collect cluster configuration, metrics, and logs to proactively detect issues, and expedite support cases troubleshooting.  This diagnostic information is packaged into an encrypted and anonymized bundle and sent to Hortonworks for analysis.  The result of that analysis is available as customized recommendations to help prevent issues […]

HDFS is core part of any Hadoop deployment and in order to ensure that data is protected in Hadoop platform, security needs to be baked into the HDFS layer. HDFS is protected using Kerberos authentication, and authorization using POSIX style permissions/HDFS ACLs or using Apache Ranger. Apache Ranger (http://hortonworks.com/hadoop/ranger/) is a centralized security administration solution […]

Hackathons, Hackfest, and Codefests have an initial air of invincibility. They challenge participants, even veterans—not if the attendees work together or if the community collaborates and innovates together. That air of invincibility quickly dissipates. Last Saturday, because of such camaraderie and collaboration, a harmony of innovative ideas flourished and came to fruition at an Ambari […]

Geospatial data is pervasive—in mobile devices, sensors, logs, and wearables. This data’s spatial context is an important variable in many predictive analytics applications. To benefit from spatial context in a predictive analytics application, we need to be able to parse geospatial datasets at scale, join them with target datasets that contain point in space information, […]

In a world that creates 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every year, it is extremely cheap to collect, store and curate all the data you will ever care about. Data is de facto becoming the largest untapped asset. So how can organizations take advantage of unprecedented amounts of data? The answer is new innovations; and […]

We are excited to announce the general availability of Hortonworks Sandbox with HDP 2.3 on Microsoft Azure Gallery. Hortonworks Sandbox is already a very popular environment for developers, data scientists and administrators to learn and experiment with the latest innovations in Hortonworks Data Platform. The hundreds of innovations span across Apache Hadoop, Kafka, Storm, Spark, […]

Everyday more and more new devices—smartphones, sensors, wearables, tablets, home appliances—connect together by joining the “Internet of Things.” Cisco predicts that by 2020, there will be 50 billion devices connected to Internet of Things. Naturally, they all will emit streams of data, in short intervals. Obviously, these data streams will have to be stored, will […]

Last week, on July 22nd, we announced the general availability of HDP 2.3. Of the three part blog series, the first blog summarized the key innovations in the release—ease of use & enterprise readiness and how those are helping deliver transformational outcomes—while the second blog focused on data access innovation. In this final part, we […]

On August 4th at 10:00 am PST, Eric Thorsen, General Manager Retail/CP at Hortonworks and Krishnan Parasuraman, VP Business Development at Splice Machine, will be talking about how Hadoop can be leveraged as a scale-out relational database to be the System of Record and power mission critical applications. In this blog, they provide answers to […]

On July 22nd, we introduced the general availability of HDP 2.3. In part 2 of this blog series, we explore notable improvements and features related to Data Access. SQL on Hadoop Spark 1.3.1 Stream Processing Systems of Engagement that scale HDP Search We are especially excited about what these data access improvements mean for our […]

We are very pleased to announce that Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) Version 2.3 is now generally available for download. HDP 2.3 brings numerous enhancements across all elements of the platform spanning data access to security to governance. This version delivers a compelling new user experience, making it easier than ever before to “do Hadoop” and […]

Drink from Elephant’s Well Of Knowledge Developer success starts with open and reusable code, and a community that allows for both consumption of code and contribution of updates to the code base. This success engenders a thriving and evolving community. To that end, today we are announcing the Hortonworks Gallery for developers. Located on GitHub, the […]

Early this year, ApacheTM FalconTM became a Top Level Project (TLP) in the Apache Software Foundation. The project continues to mature as a framework for simplifying and orchestrating data lifecycle management in Hadoop by offering out-of-the-box data management policies. The Apache Falcon 0.6.1 release builds on this foundation by providing simplified mirroring functionality and a […]
