Hadoop vendors are listening: Hortonworks gets pragmatic
This being #Hadoop ‘s tenth birthday (and #Hortonworks ‘ fifth), it’s not surprising that both platform and company have grown a fair bit — and of course still have some growing up to do. The platform itself has come a long way. From Hadoop’s earliest days, when it was defined as simply storage (HDFS) and compute ( #MapReduce ), today’s platform has dozens of core and competing open source components addressing many of the housekeeping features associated with databases, from operations management to security, data protection, and data governance. And Hortonworks has come a long way from the single product pure open source company.
