Shaun Connolly for the Hortonworks blog:
we believe the fastest way to innovate is to do our work within the
open source community, introduce enterprise feature requirements
into that public domain, and to work diligently to progress existing
open source projects and incubate new projects to meet those needs.
In support of our approach, this week we’ve announced the submission
of two new incubation projects to the Apache Software foundation
together with the launch of the “Stinger Initiative”, all aimed at
enhancing the security and performance of Hadoop applications.
I’m forced, but extremely happy to take back what I said.
- Stinger: an initiative to speed up Apache Hive for interactive queries. Read about it here
- Know Gateway: a solution for authentication and security in Hadoop. More details here
- Tez framework: a new Hadoop YARN-based runtime for improved latency and throughput. Details here
Hortonworks believes in open source.
