In just a few years, interest in Hadoop has enjoyed a meteoric rise. It is everywhere… and it should be available everywhere.
Here at Hortonworks we have worked to provide the widest range of deployment options for Hadoop… from on-premises to the cloud, Linux and Windows, and from commodity server clusters to high-end appliances. Deployment options are critical to the adoption of Hadoop and a key factor to adoption.
Today, we add Ubuntu to the list of options we support for HDP 2.0. We have certified HDP 2.0 on Ubuntu 12.04 Precise, the latest Ubuntu release with Long Term Support. This is a significant advance as it represents the final mile in terms of Linux coverage. This along with our version for Windows Server should provide coverage for more than 99% of enterprises in the world.
