Hortonworks Data Platform Manages Data-at-Rest
Architected, developed, and built completely in the open, Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP™) provides an enterprise ready data platform that enables organizations to deploy the next generation enterprise data platform. Hortonworks Data Platform is a seamless component of the Hortonworks Connected Data Platforms strategy.
With YARN as its architectural center it provides a data platform for multi-workload data processing across an array of processing methods – from batch through interactive to real-time, supported by key capabilities required of an enterprise data platform — spanning Governance, Security and Operations
Complete & Open
Hortonworks Data Platform is built in the open. Go with the standard and take advantage of the latest innovation being delivered by Hortonworks and the open-source community. All our work is contributed into the wide array of projects governed by the Apache Software Foundation.
Hortonworks Data Platform is built for the enterprise. HDP includes rich data security, governance and operations functionality that works across component technologies and integrates with pre-existing EDW, RDBMS and MPP systems.
Hortonworks Data Platform integrates with, and augments, your existing applications and systems so that you can take advantage of Hadoop with only minimal change to existing data architectures and skillsets. Deploy HDP in-cloud, on-premise or from an appliance across both Linux and Windows.
Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP™) 2.4
Starting with HDP 2.4, Hortonworks is enhancing the velocity of its release cycle by balancing the customers’ requirements for a stable platform with rapid access to the latest innovations in the open source community. In order to accomplish this goal, Hortonworks announced a brand new release strategy that includes:
Core HDP services
Going forward, Core HDP services that comprise of HDFS, YARN and MapReduce will align with the "ODPi Core"- compatible version of Apache Hadoop (currently Hadoop ver 2.7.1). Core HDP services provide customers with a stable base for their mission critical workloads and at the same time empowers Big Data solutions providers with a standard that they can qualify their solutions against.
Extended HDP services
Extended HDP services relates to the services that access the data stored in HDP including Hive, HBase, Storm, Spark and more. Extended services provide customers with the flexibility to uptake the innovation that is delivered on top of the common core, based on their own requirements and schedule. With Extended services, customers would be able to easily uptake the new functionality without causing any disruption to their core platform.
Hortonworks will keep pace with the feature-bearing releases by the Community and make them available to the customers as part of the Extended HDP services with a rapid release cadence that happens multiple times a year.
