Hortonwork’s announces Certification Program for Apache Hadoop

Hortonworks’ New Certification Program Enables the Next Generation Data Architecture with Apache Hadoop:

[…]today announced the launch of the Hortonworks Certified Technology Program, designed to help customers choose leading enterprise software that has been tested to integrate with Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), the only 100-percent open source Apache Hadoop distribution. By certifying technologies, Hortonworks is taking the risk out of the technology selection, thereby accelerating and simplifying customers’ big data projects. The Program strengthens and expands the Apache Hadoop ecosystem, while helping to increase the enterprise capabilities of Apache Hadoop.

I assume the model here is that vendors pay Hortonworks for this certification and they can use the Hortonworks stamp when talking to customers.
