Hortonworks helps companies enable the modern data architecture with the HDP Hadoop distribution, built to bring Hadoop to the enterprise.

Hortonworks performs all of its development within the processes of the Apache Software Foundation – our code is 100% open source with zero proprietary extensions. This model is unique to Hortonworks and we believe represents the future of enterprise software development. With Hortonworks there is no license and instead we specialize in support, services and training.

We do Hadoop.
Founded in 2011 by 24 engineers from the original Yahoo! Hadoop development and operations team, Hortonworks has amassed more Hadoop experience under one roof than any other organization. Our team members are active participants and leaders in Hadoop development; designing, building and testing the core of the Hadoop platform. We have years of experience in Hadoop operations and are best suited to support your mission-critical Hadoop project.

Building a Modern Data Architecture
An MDA provides a platform to capture and store vast quantities of data in a cost efficient and scalable manner, process that data in multiple ways in turn unleashing iterative analytic opportunities and innovations, all while integrating with existing data center technology and making the most of existing skills.

When you distill down all the types of data being managed by Hadoop, they generally fall into six categories.

- Sentiment & Web
- Clickstream
- Machine & Sensor
- Geographic Data
- Server Logs
- General Unstructured Content

I help companies primarily in Southern California that range from those just getting started with Hadoop to those with large production Hadoop clusters.
