HDP 3.0 includes key innovations that further modernize data platforms, ultimately leading to faster insights for the business. HDP 3.0’s real-time database query optimizations, with best-of-breed Micron® NVMe™ solid state drives, accelerate the time to insights so critical for decision-making in today’s competitive business environment.

Eric Endebrock, VP, Storage Solutions Marketing

Micron Technology, Inc. is an American global corporation based in Boise, Idaho. The company is one of the largest memory manufacturers in the world, producing many forms of semiconductor devices, including dynamic random-access memory, flash memory, and solid-state drives.

Business Challenge

The manufacture of semiconductors is a highly complex process, meaning data is of utmost importance for Micron. The business was facing constraints with the level of tools and analytics it could provide.


The company started utilizing HDP for data management, so that it could focus more on analytical solutions. Apache Nifi is also being used for data ingestion pipelines. Hortonworks helps support Micron on the engineering side, which has helped provide excellent solutions for Micron’s customers.


One big success that Micron has seen with HDP was shortening the time it took to identify misprocessed die from 7 days, down to under an hour. Additional datasets continue to be added into the environment, as data scientists and data engineers develop critical analytical solutions.
