Features next-generation MapReduce Architecture
Apache Hadoop projects contributor Hortonworks has introduced new Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) version 2 to provide the Apache Hadoop ecosystem with an enterprise viable platform for harnessing the power of big data.
HDP v2 leverages Apache Hadoop 0.23. Hadoop 0.23 provides the critical foundation for the next wave of Apache Hadoop innovation.
Hortonworks Data Platform v2 is designed for enterprise-scale deployments and integration with the broader ISV ecosystem and will provide Hadoop 0.23 within a fully integrated and tested technology preview release in Q1 2012.
HDP v2 features a next-generation MapReduce Architecture that adds advancements in scalability, performance and high availability, decouples MapReduce from the resource management architecture and enables new application types to plug into Hadoop, including stream processing, graph processing, bulk synchronous processing and message passing interface (MPI).
In addition, the new release also includes a HDFS NameNode High Availability that improves data integrity and supports multiple failover options, HDFS Federation provides a clear separation of Namespace and Block Storage and improves scalability, isolation and multitenant architectures and the up-to-date stable Hadoop components including HCatalog, HBase, Hive and Pig.
Hortonworks CEO Eric Baldeschwieler said with more than three years of development and much anticipation, Apache Hadoop 0.23 delivers important advancements in scalability, performance, high availability and data integrity.
"Apache Hadoop 0.23 is currently being tested across hundreds of applications in the world’s largest Hadoop deployment. We are excited to make the technology advancements in Apache Hadoop 0.23 available through an easily consumable version via the Hortonworks Data Platform v2," said Baldeschwieler.
