Working within the community...
...for the enterprise
Hortonworks is committed to delivering HDP completely in the open. We introduce enterprise feature requirements into the public domain and we code to address those requirements. We contribute all of that code back to the wide array of Hadoop ecosystem projects managed within the Apache Software Foundation..
Advancing Hadoop Together
Community initiatives rally Hadoop users, developers and vendors towards common objectives
Supporting Projects to Meet Enterprise Needs
Projects introduced to ASF address security, management, operations and data access
YARN : Engineering Hadoop from the core
YARN is the ‘data operating system’ within Hadoop that enables common sets of data to be processed simultaneously by multiple applications.
Introduced as MR-279 by Arun Murthy in 2009, work on Hadoop’s next-generation architecture powered by YARN culminated in 2013 with the release of Hadoop 2.
Today, YARN is the center of innovation in and around Hadoop. It has become the enabling technology that enables multiple applications to share a common cluster and dataset, which in turn enables the modern data architecture.
From Open-Source to Enterprise Data Platform
HDP : Completely Open-Source Apache Hadoop
Hortonworks develops within the governance model of the Apache Software Foundation contributing to and progressing the individual components from the Hadoop ecosystem and ultimately integrating them into the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP).
Assembling a complete platform like HDP requires choosing the right stable version of Apache Hadoop as the foundation and then integrating, and packaging the optimal versions of all the other ASF components into a well-tested, certified data platform.
