HP and Hortonworks TODAY announced a strategic partnership to address the critical big data needs of enterprise customers.
The joint commitment will help accelerate the adoption of Enterprise Apache Hadoop by deeply integrating the Hortonworks Data Platform with the HP HAVEn big data platform. The partnership is also supported by a USD50m equity investment by HP.
As part of the partnership, HP and Hortonworks have committed to integrate their engineering strategies and deepen their existing go-to-market collaboration, enabling HP customers to deploy the Hortonworks Data Platform as the Hadoop component of HP HAVEn. HP will also work to certify HP Vertica with Apache Hadoop YARN, the architectural centre of Hadoop 2.0.
Hortonworks is the only 100-percent open source software provider to develop, distribute and support an Apache Hadoop platform explicitly architected, built and tested for enterprise-grade deployments. For more information, visit www.hortonworks.com.
