Shaun Connolly summarizing a recent webinar about where Hortonwork’s work on Hadoop will focus in 2013:
[…] Interactive Query, Business Continuity (DR,
Snapshots, etc.), Secure Access, as well as ongoing investments in
Data Integration, Management (i.e. Ambari), and Online Data (i.e.
[…] Rather than abandon the Apache Hive community, Hortonworks is
focused on working in the community to optimize Hive’s ability to
serve big data exploration and interactive query in support of
important BI use cases. Moreover, we are focused on enabling Hive to
take advantage of YARN in Apache Hadoop 2.0, which will help ensure
fast query workloads don’t compete for resources with the other jobs
running in the cluster. Enabling Hadoop to predictably support
enterprise workloads that span Batch, Interactive, and Online use
cases is an important area of focus for us.
Basically this says that Hortonworks sees YARN and Hive as the answer to online or real-time interactive querying of Hadoop data. Cloudera’s take on this is different.
