Everything you ever wanted to know about Hortonworks

Derrick Harris and Hortonworks CEO Rob Bearden talked in an interview about:

Top personnel have changed places without so much as a press release, venture capital investment hasn’t been disclosed, and there are semi-regular rumors about the company spurning acquisition offers (namely from Microsoft and Intel).

Interesting bits:

  1. the first round of founding Hortonworks raised from Yahoo! and Benchmark, the round that everyone speculated about as it wasn’t disclosed, was $23mil;
  2. Hortonworks is planning to IPO in “five to seven quarters”. That’s a pretty aggressive plan. And I still believe that they’ll take a different route.
  3. About Eric Baldeschwiler’s departure: “Very candidly… Eric just got frustrated that he didn’t have the control that he once had.”
