Hortonworks®, IBM and Pivotal Harmonize on Open Data Platform Vision to Accelerate Big Data Solutions
Apr 14 15
Hortonworks®, IBM, and Pivotal announced each of their respective Hadoop based platform products are now aligned on a common Open Data Platform (ODP) core of Apache™ Hadoop® 2.6 (inclusive of HDFS, YARN, and MapReduce) and Apache Ambari software. The ODP initiative is an industry effort focused on simplifying adoption of Apache Hadoop for the enterprise, and enabling big data solutions to flourish through improved ecosystem interoperability. It relies on the governance of the Apache Software Foundation community to innovate and deliver the Apache project technologies included in the ODP core. This milestone demonstrates the progress made by the ODP members on the promise to speed Hadoop adoption by delivering compatible solutions that improve interoperability and unlock customer choice. Available in the market today, the Hortonworks Data Platform 2.2, IBM Open Platform 4.0 with Apache Hadoop, and Pivotal HD 3.0 are all based on the common ODP core. This harmonization alleviates compatibility issues and eases the testing and validation burden for enterprise customers as the entire big data ecosystem can now integrate with a common and predictable core platform. The ODP initiative allows enterprises and ecosystem vendors alike to verify once and run anywhere across their preferred big data infrastructure deployments. As ecosystem and solution providers create value from Hadoop through the ODP's ongoing efforts, enterprise customers will see the benefits of increased choice with more big data applications and solutions.
