DATAWORKS SUMMIT, SAN JOSE, Calif., June 18, 2018 — Hortonworks, Inc.® (NASDAQ: HDP), a leading provider of global data management solutions, today announced Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) 3.0, which delivers significant new enterprise features including containerization for faster and easier deployment of applications, and increased developer productivity. The new version of HDP enables customers to more quickly, reliably and securely get value from their data at scale to drive business transformation.
“The pace of innovation coming from the open source community has not slowed and means that customers are getting the latest and best new features in HDP, including containerization, the ability to run deep learning applications and major performance enhancements to analytics,” said Arun Murthy, co-founder and chief product officer, Hortonworks. “HDP is maturing to meet changing enterprise requirements, and we are pleased to deliver this landmark release to customers so they can embrace a modern data architecture.”
A key component of modern data architectures, HDP is a secure, enterprise-ready, open source Apache™ Hadoop®-based platform. It addresses the complete needs of data at rest, powers real-time customer applications and delivers robust big data analytics that accelerate decision-making and innovation. Unlike other Hadoop-based distributions, many of the new enhancements to HDP 3.0 are based on Apache Hadoop 3.1 and include:
Optimized for the Cloud
HDP continues to evolve to meet the unique characteristics of cloud deployments. The platform includes engineered support for all of the major cloud object stores: Amazon S3 with support for native EDW, Azure Storage Blob and Google Cloud Storage (GCS). This includes enhancements across the platform that deliver a consistency layer for non-consistent cloud stores. Customers also benefit from shared services of enterprise security, data governance and operations across public clouds and automatic cluster scaling based on usage or time metrics for added efficiency. As enterprises move big data workloads from on-premises to the cloud, HDP enables customers to adopt a hybrid data architecture with any and all of the major cloud providers.
“HDP 3.0 includes key innovations that further modernize our data platform, ultimately leading to faster insights for the business,” said Eric Endebrock, vice president, Storage Solutions Marketing at Micron Technology. “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.”
