Hortonworks Selected as an Approved G-Cloud Supplier

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, July 10, 2018 – The Crown Commercial Service (CCS) has announced Hortonworks® as an approved G-Cloud supplier on the Digital Marketplace, opening up numerous public sector opportunities.

The Digital Marketplace supports the Government vision of a Public Sector ‘Amazon’ meaning that Hortonworks is able to deliver services to Government departments across the UK.

Launched in 2012, the G-Cloud is an agreement between the UK Government and suppliers who provide cloud technology and services. It is designed to drive down costs by allowing public sector bodies to purchase standardised services from approved suppliers, rather than having to sign up to a variety of contracts with differing terms and conditions.

Joe Morrissey, VP International at Hortonworks said: “We are extremely pleased to be selected as one of the key suppliers of the UK Government’s latest iteration of G-Cloud. Our cloud services will enable public bodies to deploy scalable big data solutions in hybrid and multi-cloud environments, with consistent security and governance. We are looking forward to the new opportunities presented via the Digital Marketplace and to further expand our presence within this vital part of the UK economy.”

Hortonworks provides a wide range of services on the G-Cloud framework including:

  • Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP®), the secure, enterprise-ready open source Apache Hadoop distribution based on a centralized architecture. It addresses the needs of data-at-rest, powers real-time customer applications and delivers robust big data analytics that accelerate decision making and innovation.
  • Hortonworks DataFlow (HDF), an open source platform for data acquisition, transport, delivery and processing, designed to accommodate the highly diverse and complicated dataflows generated by IoT. It runs seamlessly in any cloud environment and delivers streaming, real-time data analytics.
  • Support for Apache Metron, an open source big data cybersecurity application framework that enables a single view of diverse, streaming security data at scale to aid security operations centers in rapidly detecting and responding to threats.

Hortonworks partnered with GovData and utilised their expertise in order to tap into and realise the opportunity available through Digital marketplace.
