“Microsoft is committed to delivering enterprise-ready big data options to our customers, and the Hortonworks Data Platform gives customers an Apache Hadoop-based solution that works seamlessly with their existing Microsoft infrastructure as well as Windows Azure HDInsight,” said Herain Oberoi, director, Server and Tools Marketing at Microsoft. “Hortonwork’s Hadoop management packs for System Center Operations Manager and System Center Virtual Machine Manager will enable customers to monitor and manage their Hadoop clusters using a consistent enterprise platform.”

HDP for Windows makes it easier for the millions of customers running their businesses on Microsoft technologies to have an enterprise-ready Apache Hadoop-based platform that integrates with familiar business analytics tools, such as Microsoft Excel. Microsoft System Center is an integrated management platform that enables organizations to efficiently manage data centers, client devices and hybrid cloud IT environments. The Hortonworks management packs for System Center will provide comprehensive management and monitoring of Hadoop from a single System Center Operations Manager console, enabling enterprises to streamline operations and ensure quality of service levels.

The Hortonworks management packs work with the Apache Ambari management solution. Microsoft and Hortonworks are collaborating on the Ambari specification and on the Windows specific implementation of Ambari.

“Hortonworks continues to work with leading IT vendors to help extend the Hadoop ecosystem with more Hadoop-compatible solutions for the enterprise,” said Shaun Connolly, vice president of corporate strategy, Hortonworks. “These management packs will enable System Center customers to monitor and manage HDP, allowing organizations to more easily and efficiently integrate the next-generation data architecture across the enterprise.”


Free management packs for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager and Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager for HDP will be available in the third quarter.
