Hortonworks Data Platform, Optional Add-Ons and 3rd-Party Component Licenses

Hortonworks is dedicated to providing a 100% open source, Apache licensed product for our users and community. A variety of open source projects have been integrated, tested and combined as part of the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP). The specific versions of these projects have been selected because they have been tested and certified to be the most stable, compatible and production-ready releases available in their respective domains.
This document lists each HDP product version and its components. Since HDP is also accompanied with Optional Add-Ons and 3rd-Party Components, this document also provides a list of these components including version and license details.

HDP Licensing

The Platform Components comprising the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) are released under the Apache 2.0 License. Unless required by applicable law, software distributed under the Apache License is distributed on an “AS IS” BASIS. You may obtain a copy of the Apache License at: http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0

Optional Add-Ons and 3rd-Party Components

While HDP is provided under the terms of the Apache 2.0 License, it is also commonly used with 3rd-Party Components (ex. Oracle’s JDK – Java Platform) and Optional Add-Ons (ex. Hive ODBC Driver). When you choose to use those components, it is recommended you read and understand the licensing terms specific to each of those components. Also note that Add-Ons can be downloaded separately from HDP and each comes with instructions on how to install and leverage the features alongside HDP.
