7 Minutes on Hortonworks Data Platform v2.0

The year is coming to its end. Maybe you’re reading this as you race to check a few more 2013 items off of your to-do list (at work or at home). Or maybe you’ve already got a hot toddy in your hand and your feet kicked up, with slippers warming your toes.

In 2013, I have been fortunate enough to spend the year speaking with our customers and I learned about how so many important organizations are using Apache Hadoop and Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) to solve real problems. To make their products better. To treat heart disease. To understand their customers and to serve their markets.

With that in mind, I recently sat down with Bob Page, VP of Products at Hortonworks, to discuss some of the great things that all of our customers (present and future) can expect from HDP2.

Here are some of the highlights:

  1. Efficient new data processing workloads running side-by-side in Apache Hadoop YARN, the Hadoop operating system
  2. Interactive queries at petabyte scale, made possible by Apache Hive v0.12 and the Stinger Initiative
  3. Easier provisioning, monitoring and management of an HDP2 clusters with Apache Ambari v1.4.1
  4. Remarkable reductions in mean time to recovery (MTTR) with Apache HBase improvements in version 0.96

In 2014, as always, we do Hadoop.

We’re  looking forward to sharing more of these videos in the new year and to going into more detail about the innovation that is packed into HDP v2.0.
