eMetrics Summit

April 14-18 2013, San Francisco

Hortonworks VP Products, Bob Page, will be speaking at two sessions at this analytics event.


April 15-18, 2013, Portland, Oregon

We’re heading to our very first OpenStack Summit to talk about all things Apache Hadoop on OpenStack and we would love to meet you! A cloud deployment model makes perfect sense for Hadoop, which (a) allows for efficient infrastructure usage and (b) is a net new workload for most organizations (awesome…far fewer legacy considerations).  So Hadoop + OpenStack seems like a logical fit.  If your organization is interested in combining these two mega technology trends, it would be great to connect with our team who can share what others are doing!

There are many ways to meet the Hortonworks team!
We’ll be speaking:

And we’re exhibiting! Come by our Hortonworks booth, say hello, geek out to Hadoop and Big Data and pick up an awesome swag while you’re at it!
