Create & Enhance Applications
Harness your existing .NET and Java developers with rich developer frameworks that enable them to write and deploy MapReduce jobs from existing or new applications to provide a “Hadoop Inside” experience.
HDP across all major platforms

HDP for Windows is the ONLY Hadoop distribution available for Windows Server. This release introduces Apache Hadoop YARN as the Hadoop operating system, and takes Hadoop beyond simply a single-use data platform for batch processing to a multi-use platform that enables batch, interactive, online and stream processing.

What's New in 2.0

  • HDP 2.0 on Windows comprises the most recent innovation being delivered in the open Hadoop community. It delivers the latest releases across Hadoop and the key related projects into a single integrated and tested platform. While there are hundreds of new features found in each Apache project, some of the highlights for this release include:
  • Enterprise Ready YARN, the Hadoop Operating SystemWith Hadoop 2, Apache Hadoop YARN serves as the Hadoop operating system, and takes Hadoop from a single-use data platform for batch processing to a multi-use platform that enables batch, interactive, online and stream processing.
  • Stinger Phase 2; Interactive SQL Queries at Petabyte ScaleThe Stinger Initiative was launched at the beginning of 2013 as a broad community-based effort to enhance the speed, scale and breadth of SQL semantics supported by Apache Hive. Hive 0.12 represents phase 2 of the Stinger Initiative and HDP 2.0 is a significant step forward for Hive, the de-facto standard for SQL access in Hadoop.
  • Reliable NoSQL IN Hadoop with HBaseApache HBase 0.96 is the culmination of more than a year’s worth of effort that’s delivered important enterprise features such as Snapshots and improved MTTR
