We Manage Hadoop and Spark, so you can focus on your business

Big data applications help you make sense of your data and discover critical insights that drive business optimizations. But with large volumes of data, a shortage of expertise, and large upfront investments, your project costs can quickly spiral out of control.

With Cloud Big Data, you can quickly provision a robust environment powered by Apache™ Hadoop® and Spark that's sized to fit your high-volume data processing needs and your budget. And because it's built on Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), you get enterprise-grade quality and 100% open technology.

If you need the performance of bare-metal servers, try our newly launched OnMetal for Cloud Big Data—for both Apache Spark™ and Hadoop—offering you a fully managed bare-metal platform for in-memory processing.

Security or isolation concerns; learn more about Managed Big Data Platform, our dedicated Hadoop solution.
