This is the second post in the Engineering @ Hortonworks blog series that explores how we in Hortonworks Engineering build, test and release new versions of our platforms. In this post, we deep dive into something that we are extremely excited about – Running a container cloud on YARN! We have been using this next-generation […]

One of the most exciting new features of HDP 2.6 from Hortonworks was the general availability of Apache Hive with LLAP. If you missed DataWorks Summit you’ll want to look at some of the great LLAP experiences our users shared, including Geisinger who found that Hive LLAP outperforms their traditional EDW for most of their […]

Our customers increasingly leverage Data Science, and Machine Learning to solve complex predictive analytics problem. A few examples of these problems are churn prediction, predictive maintenance, image classification, and entity matching. While everyone wants to predict the future, truly leveraging Data Science for Predictive Analytics remains the domain of a select few. To expand the […]

With the increases in data volumes, explosion in number of devices and sophistication of attackers, current cybersecurity tools are challenged processing the millions of events and providing insights fast enough. Cybersecurity teams spend hours analyzing threat events by going from one tool to the next.  We are pleased to announce the general availability of Hortonworks […]

Lloyds Banking Group has been awarded this year’s data accolade for its Digital Analytics System Delivery (DASD) project.
