Hortonworks Dataflow (HDF) offers a combination Apache NiFI, Kafka and Storm. HDF 2.0 has significant architecture and enterprise productivity features to make it faster and easier to deploy, manage and analyze streaming data. In the next few weeks, we will go into more details, but for now, here are the three highlights to take note of.
HDF 2.0 offers an enterprise ready, integrated deployment and management option for streaming analytics, from the edge into the core with
The new streaming analytics features of HDF 2.0 enable businesses to turn in-motion data into real-time insights, with the highlights below.
Many enterprises today deploy a combination of individual products for data movement, data collection, messaging bus and real time streaming analytics to create a an integrated in-house solution. HDF accelerates the on ramp to streaming analytics with an integrated enterprise ready solution.
With the new enterprise readiness features of HDF 2.0, businesses can accelerate business value from data in motion through operational visibility and centralized security.

HDF 2.0 supports Apache MiNiFi, a subproject of Apache NiFi, designed to solve the difficulties of managing and transmitting data feeds to and from the source of origin, enabling edge intelligence to adjust dataflow behavior with bi-directional communication, out to the last mile of digital signal.
MiNiFi is designed to be a very small and lightweight footprint*, generate the same level of data provenance as NiFi that is vital to edge analytics and IoAT (Internet of Any Thing) and integration with NiFi for follow-on dataflow management and full chain of custody of information. (MiNiFi is pronounced “minify”, [min-uh-fahy]) and the java agent is supported as part of HDF 2.0.)
Those are the three things to know about HDF 2.0 that we will delve into further detail upon in upcoming blog posts. In the meantime, we would recommend the following for further reading about how Hortonworks DataFlow is used in real world environments.
