Three sentences in a 5 paragraphs post from Hortonwork’s CEO about Eric Baldeschwieler departure:
I’d like to start off first by thanking Eric for his contributions to the
Hadoop community since its inception over 7 years ago, and I’d like to express my personal
appreciation for his help in getting Hortonworks off the ground.
This smells like a not so friendly breakup.
✚ The first to notice this change was Derrick Harris on GigaOm.
✚ The new Hortonworks CTO is Ari Zilka (previously founder and CTO of IMDG Terracotta, but at the time already working at Hortonworks)
