Our Big Data solutions are built on the Hortonworks Data Platform and supported by the Hadoop experts at Hortonworks.
The Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) is an industry-leading, enterprise-level Hadoop distribution—tested at scale to address the most demanding workloads. It comes complete with an advanced toolset, including Pig, Hive, HBase, Sqoop, Flume, and Hcatalog, and a rich ecosystem of technology partners to deliver deep insights out of a variety of data.
The Hortonworks team brings a unique level of expertise to configuring, maintaining, and optimizing Apache Hadoop. Founded by the original Yahoo! Hadoop developers, Hortonworks contributes roughly half of the development back into the Apache Hadoop community and is best positioned to understand customer needs and pain points.
We have partnered with Hortonworks to provide on-demand Apache Hadoop service for managed dedicated servers and our OpenStack®-powered public and private clouds.
Hortonworks is a natural choice for us in the big data space due to its adoption of open source technology and its contributions to the Apache Hadoop community. Hortonworks is also an industry thought leader in regard to complex design of big data solutions. Together, Rackspace and Hortonworks bring a vast amount of expertise to these offerings.
They continue to focus on innovating the core of Apache Hadoop, while also ensuring that all of the capabilities required to make Apache Hadoop enterprise grade are developed and available in the open source community.
