Providing comprehensive Hadoop capabilities, HDP 2.1 delivers required enterprise functionality for data management, data access, data governance, integration, security and operations developed and delivered completely in the open. Incorporating the very latest community innovations across all Apache Hadoop projects, HDP 2.1 provides the foundational platform for organizations looking to incorporate Hadoop in a modern data architecture.

"Hortonworks remains committed to innovating and delivering a certified, stable, and completely open source enterprise Hadoop platform comprised of the most recent Apache project releases," said Shaun Connolly, vice president of corporate strategy, Hortonworks.

Hortonworks Data Platform 2.1 release highlights include:

1.

Interactive SQL Query In Hadoop
HDP 2.1 includes the delivery of Apache Hive 0.13. This represents completion of the final phase of the Stinger initiative, a broad community effort to deliver interactive SQL query at petabyte scale in Hadoop. This 13-month initiative resulted in over 390,000 lines of code being added to Apache Hive from 145 developers from over 45 unique organizations including Microsoft, Teradata and SAP and is a testament to the power of community-driven open source.




With the release of Apache Hive 0.13, the Stinger Initiative has delivered on its promise of: 


  

Speed: 100X increase in SQL query performance


  

Scale: interactive query at petabyte scale and across a wide range of complex queries and joins


   • 

SQL: expanded range of SQL semantics for analytic applications running in Hadoop




2.

New Enterprise Capabilities for Data Governance and Security


HDP 2.1 delivers on two key enterprise capabilities:


  •

Apache Falcon delivers a critical data processing framework for governing and orchestrating data flows in and around Hadoop


  •

Apache Knox extends perimeter security for Hadoop and is fully integrated into existing frameworks such as LDAP and Active Directory to provide credential management for Hadoop

3.

New Processing Engines for Streaming and Search


HDP 2.1 includes two new processing engines:


  •

Apache Storm provides real-time event processing to analyze/process sensor and business activity monitoring data


  •

Apache Solr extends Hadoop and HDP with a powerful user interface for advanced search applications and high-performance indexing and sub-second search times over billions of documents

4.

Enhanced Management and Operations Capabilities


HDP 2.1 includes the very latest version of Apache Ambari which now supports new data access engines, provides stack extensibility and rolling restarts, and other significant operational improvements

HDP 2.1 is supported by a broad ecosystem of customers and partners, including the following strategic partners:
