HortonWorks: All content tagged as HortonWorks in NoSQL databases and polyglot persistence
Besides the well established Amazon Elastic MapReduce and Windows Azure HDInsight, there are two new Hadoop-in-the-cloud services:
- Skytap which offers Cloudera CDH4 Enterprise experimentation clusters up to 50 nodes
- Joyent Solution for Hadoop which is offered in partnership with Hortonworks. I hesitated for a bit to mention Joyent considering the page says “Sign up now to talk to a Joyent Solutions Architect” which is anything but a cloud service.

Found the following bits in a post on The Register by Timothy Prickett Morgan:
While Cloudera and MapR are charging $4,000 per node for their enterprise-class Hadoop distributions (including their proprietary extensions and tech support), Hortonworks doesn’t have any proprietary extensions and is living off of the support contracts for the HDP 1.0 stack. […] Hortonworks is not providing its full list price, but for a starter ten-node cluster, you can get a standard support contract for $12,000 per year.
Hortonworks’s pricing looks a bit aggressive, but this could be explained by the fact that Hortonworks Data Platform 1.0 was made available only this week.
For running Hadoop in the cloud, there’s also Amazon Elastic MapReduce whose pricing was always clear. And Amazon has recently announced support for MapR Hadoop distribution on Elastic MapReduce.

Hortonworks has announced the 1.0 release of the Hortonworks Data Platform prior to the Hadoop Summit 2012 together with a lot of supporting quotes from companies like Attunity, Dataguise, Datameer, Karmasphere, Kognitio, MarkLogic, Microsoft, NetApp, StackIQ, Syncsort, Talend, 10gen, Teradata, and VMware.
Some info points:
Hortonworks Data Platform is a platform meant to simplify the installation, integration, management, and use of Apache Hadoop
- HDP 1.0 is based on Apache Hadoop 1.0
- Apache Ambari is used for installation and provisioning
- The same Apache Amabari is behind the Hortonworks Management Console
- For Data integration, HDP offers WebHDFS, HCatalog APIs, and Talend Open Studio
- Apache HCatalog is the solution offering metadata and table management
Hortonworks Data Platform is 100% open source—I really appreciate Hortonworks’s dedication to the Apache Hadoop project and open source community
- HDP comes with 3 levels of support subscriptions, pricing starting at $12500/year for a 10 nodes cluster
One of the most interesting aspects of the Hortonworks Data Platform release is that the high-availability (HA) option for HDP is based on using VMWare-powered virtual machines for the NameNode and JobTracker. My first thought about this approach is that it was chosen to strengthen a partnership with VMWare. On the other hand, Hadoop 2.0 contains already a new highly-available version of the NameNode (Cloudera Hadoop Distribution uses this solution) and VMWare has bigger plans for a virtualization-friendly Hadoop environment with project Serengeti.
