HortonWorks: All content tagged as HortonWorks in NoSQL databases and polyglot persistence
Matthieu Lieber summarizes what he has learned from a talk by Alan Gates. If any of the following questions interests you, head to his post:
- What is Stinger?
- Why build upon Hive rather than build a new system?
- Why is SQL compatibility important?
- What is Tez and how does it related to the Stinger initiative?
- What Tez means for Pig and other tools?

Hortonworks, eBay and Scaled Risk have been collaborating in improving the mean time to recovery in HBase and after long testing performed at eBay, some results are now available for 2 scenarios:
- Node/RegionServer failures while writing
- Node/RegionServer failures while reading

In 4 years of writing this blog I haven’t seen such a prolific month:
- Apache Hadoop 2.2.0 (more links here)
- Apache HBase 0.96 (here and here)
- Apache Hive 0.12 (more links here)
- Apache Ambari 1.4.1
- Apache Pig 0.12
- Apache Oozie 4.0.0
- Plus Presto.
Actually I don’t think I’ve ever seen such an ecosystem like the one created around Hadoop.

I’m catching up with the news these days and this rumor about Hortonworks from Curt Monash’s post sounds pretty big:
There’s a widespread belief that Hortonworks is being shopped. Numerous folks — including me — believe the rumor of an Intel offer for $700 million. Higher figures and alternate buyers aren’t as widely believed.
First of all, I don’t know anything about this—and just to be clear that means I really don’t know anything. But if it turns out to be true:
- it’s huge news for the Hadoop market
- it’s big news for the open source world as I think it would represent the 2nd largest acquisition of a pure open source company after MySQL. Achieved in 5th of the time
- this could make things simpler or much more complicated for Cloudera. Depending on how the acquirer will decide to operate the business
- this could be good news or pretty bad news for the Hadoop community and ecosystem considering the contributions Hortonworks made over time
If someone decides to drop me an “anonymous” email I promise I won’t hear anything.

Eric Baldeschwieler’s keynote from HadoopSummit has been published on YouTube. It’s mainly about the goals and effort behind Hadoop 2.0 and the new tools in the Hadoop’s ecosystem meant to simplify different aspects of a Hadoop deployment (HCatalog, Ambary, Tez, Stinger Initiative).
✚ Datanami has published a summary of the keynote here
