Hortonworks, Inc. Key Developments

Hortonworks, Inc. Announces the General Availability of Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP®) Version 2.6

Hortonworks, Inc. announced the general availability of Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP®) version 2.6, which leverages open source innovations to deliver enhanced enterprise features. HDP is the industry's only true secure, enterprise-ready open source Apache™ Hadoop® distribution that addresses the complete needs of data-at-rest, powers real-time customer applications and delivers robust analytics that accelerate decision making and innovation. With HDP 2.6, customers benefit from interactive query in seconds, enhanced data science, enterprise-grade security and streamlined operations—in the cloud and on-premises—to harvest value from their data faster than previously possible. With the general availability of Hive with LLAP, customers will benefit from a dramatic performance boost for SQL interactive queries. In addition, HDP 2.6 introduced ACID merge functionality to enable additional use cases for optimizing existing Enterprise Data Warehouse investments without requiring all data to be re-loaded. In addition, HDP 2.6 includes the following new capabilities: Data Science at Scale: Improved user experience for data scientists with Spark 2.1 and the latest version of Zeppelin. Enterprise-Grade Security: Enhancements to Ranger and Atlas include reduced sync time for customers with large user bases and enhanced bulk addition of policies from one environment to another via expanded tag-based policy support for Spark, Zeppelin, HDFS, Kafka and Hbase. Streamlined and Proactive Operations: Easy configuration of services and components when a cluster node restarts with the latest version of Ambari, as well as immediate understanding of the most frequent operations being performed. In addition, SmartSense has been enhanced to automate the application of the recommendations for cluster improvement. Hortonworks has delivered the industry's first connected data architecture, allowing customers the flexibility to easily manage and analyze data in the data center and in the cloud. With rapidly growing cloud adoption, Hortonworks' "cloud-first" strategy delivered HDP 2.6 first on Microsoft Azure HDInsight and Hortonworks Data Cloud for AWS. Additionally, HDP 2.6 is also available on IBM Power Systems. The work Hortonworks and IBM are doing together, including their support for ODPi, gives customers increased choice when selecting a top-tier distribution for Hadoop and Spark and enables them to fully exploit the performance, scalability and acceleration capabilities of the POWER8 platform. With multiple deployment options in any environment, customers benefit from increased choice for HDP.

Clearsense Leverages Hortonworks to Drive Innovation in Healthcare

Hortonworks, Inc. announced that Clearsense, is leveraging Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP®) and Hortonworks DataFlow (HDF™) to capture value from Big Data produced by the healthcare industry. Clearsense was born out of a passion for helping healthcare organizations realize the promise of their data. It provides clearer insights into care delivery and decision-making of clinical, financial and operational challenges. With HDF, Clearsense ingests data from hospitals and health systems across the United States. That data lands into HDP, where Clearsense runs advanced analytics and data science for applications that provide real-time intelligence for their clients. Whether Clearsense's clients have clinical, financial, supply-chain or other operational challenges to address, HDP and HDF enable Clearsense to deliver exceptional value to their clients and their clients' patients. For instance, one of Clearsense's clients, a renowned healthcare provider, wanted to monitor key patient vital signs for any adverse trends. Clearsense spotted one such trend well in advance of a critical patient health situation. Such actionable insight would not be possible without analysis of real-time, streaming data through HDF.
