HDP : Archive Release

Version 2.0

What's New in 2.0

  • HDP 2.0 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
  • Manage & Monitor YARN and a Hadoop 2 clusterApache Ambari 1.4 allows you to provision, manage and monitor a cluster based on the Hadoop 2 stack. This includes YARN, MapReduce 2 and support for enabling native NameNode High Availability (HA).
