Hortonworks is a true hybrid data company. For almost a decade, the company has been helping customers build a hybrid data warehouse by leveraging the cost-efficiency, storage scalability, and extensive computing with Hadoop to optimize their enterprise data warehouses (EDW). With Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) for data-at-rest, Hortonworks DataFlow (HDF) for data-in-motion, and Hortonworks DataPlane Service (DPS) for global data management, we are delivering the tools and services required for customers to realize value in a hybrid data environment.
Our progression doesn’t stop there. When our CPO, Arun Murthy, pointed out in his previous blog post that enterprises should have a data strategy rather than a cloud strategy and choose a vendor that can deal with all of their data architecture, he had touched on some key reasons why what Hortonworks offers customers is unique.
Hortonworks wants to be your comprehensive strategic partner for all data, no matter which types and where they reside. A partner that delivers cost-efficiency with the building of a hybrid data warehouse of EDW and Hadoop, provides value in a hybrid data environment of data-at-rest and data-in-motion, and helps you securely manage and govern your hybrid data architecture for big data workloads — across on-premises and multi-clouds, now and in the future.
A hybrid big data architecture can provide you with many benefits. Other than the obvious gain of avoiding cloud vendor lock-in, it enables a workload-driven deployment strategy that:
To build a hybrid strategy that quickly realizes these benefits, Hortonworks delivers an open source analytics platform in an enterprise-ready manner for hybrid and multi-cloud environments, all through a consistent data fabric. We uniquely offer:
Our platforms and solutions enable a modern data architecture to manage data across hybrid settings. As Hortonworks’ products and services continuously evolve to support technological advancements, such as cloud, machine learning and deep learning, IoT, containerization and more, one thing remains unchanged is our mission and dedication to provide faster insight, cost-efficiency, and ease of deployment in big data — to all customers, in all industries:
Take Webtrends, a digital optimization and analytics company that helps its clients provide meaningful experiences to their customers, for example. When they faced the challenge of data volume that the amount collected surpassed one petabyte every six months and could take weeks to process, they turned to Hortonworks for a hybrid architecture of deploying HDP and HDF across on-premises and the cloud. The customer was then able to realize the benefits came in both tangible and intangible terms:
With the platforms, Webtrends transformed its business by storing, processing, and analyzing the sheer amount of data to uncover insights into consumers and their behaviors, which are invaluable to global brands.
Data is a valuable asset. Whoever controls and makes the best use of it gets a leg up in the game. Take customer data for example. Knowing customers’ purchase patterns and preferences followed by sales and marketing efforts to initiate buying intent is a powerful proposition. An edge that has fallen in the hands of the cloud giants today, as recently discussed by Marriott CEO Arne Sorense in a hospitality industry conference. Hortonworks will continue to invest in our technology to enable the deployments and analytics of big data on-prem and in the cloud, by leveraging the continuous commitments and innovations in the open source community. To give you an option to avoid cloud vendor lock-in, a chance to take back the control and insight that are rightfully yours, and an integrated data and cloud strategy that powers the future of your organization.
