Today our partner Teradata announced a new offering called the Teradata Portfolio for Hadoop, which is built upon the 100% open source Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP). The new products and expanded partnership with Hortonworks offers customers a flexible choice of deployment offerings for Apache Hadoop from one of the most trusted vendors in the data management market worldwide.
Teradata have been helping their customers to get more value from their data for more than 30 years so this is a natural next step as organizations are looking to evolve their data architectures to capture net new data sources and create new applications.
This is a strong indicator of the ecosystem rallying around Apache Hadoop and helps further our goal at Hortonworks of making Apache Hadoop an enterprise viable data platform. For Hadoop to reach its full potential organizations must integrate with and adopt the platform to simplify usage in the enterprise.
According to Scott Gnau, President, Teradata Labs, “Teradata is now a single source for all things Hadoop with unmatched appliances, software, services, and customer support,”.
Through tight platform level integration customers will be able to monitor and manage their Hadoop deployments through the Teradata Viewpoint management console. Customers will also be able to take advantage of new training and services offerings as well as Teradata’s world class support backed by the Hortonworks support and engineering teams.
No matter where an organization wants to start it’s Hadoop journey, software only open source or fully engineered appliance, Teradata has an offering that meets the needs. And, since the solutions are built upon HDP they can easily move applications between systems. Teradata have a global reach and scale and will help accelerate the adoption of Hadoop across a wide range of industries.
We congratulate Teradata on this new offering and look forward to working with them to further drive Hadoop adoption in the enterprise!
