Happy Thanksgiving!

Today, like the rest of the U.S., we take a pause from our regular blog schedule to give thanks…

We are thankful for mappers and reducers. We are thankful for namenodes and jobtrackers. We give thanks to speculative execution battling the march of the last reducer. Give thanks to every petabyte, terabyte, gigabyte, file and block of data. We are thankful for the capacity scheduler.

We are very thankful for many things here at Hortonworks and I know many of us are thankful for an extra long weekend. This has been an amazing year at Hortonworks. We have seen our team double and then triple in size and we are thankful for our smart and hard-working Hortonworkers. We are thankful for sushi lunches, an office of candy, snacks, drinks AND paid gym memberships.

We are thankful for everyone in the Apache Hadoop community and to all those who have downloaded HDP. We are thankful for a ecosystem of partners who are second to none. MOST of all, we are thankful to our investors and to all those companies who have chosen to partner with us as customers.

Happy Thanksgiving!
