Hortonworks and Google Streamline Big Data in the Cloud

“Successful businesses understand how interconnected data and cloud strategies are key to a cohesive business strategy”, as Hortonworks CTO, Scott Gnau, emphasized in his recent blog, that data, cloud and business strategies are inextricably linked for businesses to stay competitive today. Organizations can extrapolate new insight, accelerate product time to market, optimize resources, and even safeguard against harm of data breaches, all through a hybrid data and cloud strategy. As digital transformation takes place, an integrated hybrid strategy is seen as the essential foundation upon which new business models and competitive advantages are based.


To further enhance the value and commitments to our customers, Hortonworks and Google Cloud announced the expanded partnership at DataWorks Summit 2018. Hortonworks and Google continue to collaborate to optimize Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) and Hortonworks DataFlow (HDF) for Google Cloud Platform to deliver big data analytics for hybrid cloud deployments as well as hybrid big data architecture across on-premises and cloud. The key integrations and benefits include the following:

  • Google Cloud Storage optimized for running big data workloads with deeper integration with HDP.
  • Flexibility and agility for ephemeral workloads as on-demand analytics workloads can be spun up in minutes with no up-front cost and unlimited elastic scale.
  • Fast analytics at scale as Apache Hive and Apache Spark can be leveraged for interactive query, machine learning and data analytics in GCP.
  • Consistent management, security, governance, and movement across multiple data types from the enterprise edge to the cloud.
  • Automated cloud provisioning for HDP and HDF in GCP, making it even easier for customers to configure and secure workloads for the cloud while optimizing the use of cloud resources.
  • Get real-time streaming analytics by building streaming applications in minutes to capture perishable insights without writing a single line of code.

Together Hortonworks and Google enable customers to easily adopt Google Cloud Platform (GCP) for their big data workloads. Our partnership provides a best-of-breeds approach for your hybrid data and cloud strategy that will always put you ahead of your company’s growth curve, powering the business future of your organization.
