Hortonworks Strengthens its Hortonworks Data Platform

Hortonworks, Inc. unveiled new innovations at Hadoop Summit that will improve the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), allowing enterprises to accumulate, analyze, and act on data.

HDP 2.5 delivers enterprise-ready features including the integration of industry-leading comprehensive security and trusted data governance to define and implement dynamic classification-based security policies.

Enterprises can use Apache Atlas to classify and assign metadata tags, which are then enforced through Apache Ranger to enable various access policies.

Along with security improvements, analysts and data scientists can now use Apache Zeppelin, a web-based notebook, for interactive data analytics and the creation of data-driven, interactive and collaborative documents with SQL, Scala, Python and more.

The update continues to streamline operations with Apache Ambari, allowing enterprises to plan, install and securely configure HDP and easily provide ongoing maintenance and management.

The addition of the Apache Phoenix Query Server now allows greater access and choice of development languages to access data stored within HBase for developers.

With the integration of Apache Storm large scale deployments with advanced capabilities can address real-time stream processing such as native heartbeat support and automatic back pressure.

Further developer productivity advancements include new connectors for search and NoSQL databases. Storm also has streamlined operations for resource aware scheduling through Ambari views.

In addition to this news Hortonworks named Azure HDInsight as its top solution for providing customers Hadoop in the cloud, announced the expansion of its Partnerworks Program, and revealed the company will lead an effort to define and develop an open source genomics platform to accelerate genomics-based precision medicine in research and clinical care.

“We believe our focus on 100% open source, enterprise-ready features and ease of use coupled with rapid innovations from the open community is the right path to deliver Connected Data Platforms to enterprise customers,” said Tim Hall, vice president of product management, Hortonworks. “The Big Data market shows no signs of slowing down, and Hortonworks is well positioned to power the future of data.”
