A Very Hadoopy Christmas

Santa will be busy this year. On December 24th he’s scheduled to deliver presents to billions of children globally. Buddy and the Keeblers will be working overtime to meet the demand, and Santa has called in temp work from Legolas and Dobby. There’s little doubt that Santa is a master of lean manufacturing, but there’s […]

In September, Hortonworks partnered with ManTech and B23 to foster a vibrant open community to accelerate the development of OpenSOC. In December we additionally partnered with Rackspace Managed Security and submitted OpenSOC to the Apache Incubator as a podling under the name of Apache Metron. A decision to rename the project was made to represent […]

An interesting and atypical thing is happening in Healthcare. Leading data driven organizations are not simply looking to share their Hadoop experiences, successes, use cases, and best practices … but more than ever before, they are embracing the opportunity to share their experiences outside their organizations, in a style that resembles the open source community […]

Deploying a lock-in free data platform is critical for an enterprise. By this, we mean using a non-proprietary code and implementing interoperability to eliminate the risk of being dependent on a single vendor for your current or future needs. Over two thirds of respondents to our survey agree that maintaining freedom of choice was a […]

Open and Thankful

Since our founding in mid-2011, our vision for Hadoop has been that “half the world’s data will be processed by Hadoop”. With that long-term vision in mind, we focus on the mission to establish Hadoop as the foundational technology of the modern enterprise data architecture that unlocks a whole new class of data-driven applications that […]

This article originally appeared at Opensource.com and is reproduced here. There are rapidly growing feature set, high commit rates, and code contributions happening across the globe to Apache Hadoop and related Apache Software Foundation projects. However, the number of woman developers, committers, and Project Management Committee (PMC) members in this vast and diversified ecosystem are really diminutive. For the Hadoop project […]

I’d like to take a quick moment to welcome Julian Hyde as the latest addition to the Hortonworks engineering team. Julian has a long history of working on data platforms, including development of SQL engines at Oracle, Broadbase, and SQLstream. He was also the architect and primary developer of the Mondrian OLAP engine, part of […]

We’re continuing our series of quick interviews with Apache Hadoop project committers at Hortonworks. This week Mahadev Konar discusses Apache Ambari, the open source Apache project to simplify management of a Hadoop cluster. Mahadev was on the team at Yahoo! in 2006 that started developing what became Apache Hadoop. Since then, he has also held leadership positions […]

We’re continuing our series of quick interviews with Apache Hadoop project committers at Hortonworks. This week – as Hadoop 2 goes GA – Arun Murthy discusses his journey with Hadoop. The journey has taken Arun from developing Hadoop, to founding Hortonworks, to this week’s release of Hadoop 2, with its Yarn-based architecture. Arun describes the difference between […]

We’re continuing our series of quick interviews with Apache Hadoop project committers at Hortonworks. This week Mahadev Konar discusses Apache ZooKeeper, the open source Apache project that is used to coordinate various processes on a Hadoop cluster (such as electing a leader between two processes). Mahadev was on the team at Yahoo! in 2006 that started developing […]

We’re continuing our series of quick interviews with Apache Hadoop project committers at Hortonworks. This week Alan Gates, Hortonworks Co-Founder and Apache Pig Committer, discusses using Apache Pig for efficiently managing MapReduce workloads. Pig is ideal for transforming data in Hadoop: joining it, grouping it, sorting it and filtering it. Alan explains how Pig takes scripts written […]

We’re continuing our series of quick interviews with Apache Hadoop project committers at Hortonworks. This week Venkat Ranganathan discusses using Apache Sqoop for bulk data movement between Hadoop and enterprise data stores. Sqoop can also move data the other way, from Hadoop into an EDW. Venkat is a Hortonworks engineer and Apache Sqoop committer who wrote the […]
