Hortonworks and Red Hat to Demonstrate Engineering Collaboration Progress at Red Hat Summit

OpenShift by Red Hat Integrates with Hortonworks Data Platform, Accelerates Application Development with 100-percent Open Source Apache Hadoop

SAN FRANCISCO, April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Hat Summit- Hortonworks, the leading contributor to and provider of enterprise Apache™ Hadoop®, today announced the latest addition to its joint engineering alliance with Red Hat Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, including integration of OpenShift, Red Hat's award-winning Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering, with Hortonworks Data Platform, bringing Hadoop to the open hybrid cloud. OpenShift integration with Hadoop will be highlighted at Red Hat Summit in San Francisco, April 14-17.

In February, Red Hat and Hortonworks announced a comprehensive open source initiative to deliver infrastructure solutions to bring 100-percent open source Hadoop to the hybrid cloud. OpenShift is the latest addition to the growing collaboration between Hortonworks and Red Hat and will enable customers to quickly and easily develop modern analytic applications in Hadoop.

With OpenShift and Hadoop, developers will have the ability to rapidly develop and deploy application stacks on Hortonworks Data Platform, enabling them to more easily exploit multiple data types, including: sensor and machine-generated data, server logs, social, clickstream, and geo-location data currently stored in Hadoop. Additionally, developers will be able to standardize their workflow and create repeatable processes for application delivery, streamlining application development while tapping into unprecedented insight and value from data stored in Hadoop.

"After announcing our expanded strategic alliance in February, we're excited to showcase the integration of Hortonworks Data Platform with Red Hat's OpenShift PaaS," said John Kreisa, vice president of strategic marketing, Hortonworks. "With more new data sources, enterprises need to uncover ways to rapidly develop applications that will help them derive more insight from their big data solutions. This latest advancement with Red Hat will provide our customers with improved tools to develop these data analytics applications that will drive businesses forward."

"As use cases for big data continue to grow, enterprise customers increasingly rely on big data-driven applications and analytics to power their business," said Chris Morgan, technical director, OpenShift ecosystem, Red Hat. "With OpenShift, our customers can start to expand development to next-generation use cases like the Internet-of-Things, where applications can tap into and make sense of sensor and machine-generated data, server logs, social, clickstream, geo-location data, and much more."

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tony Shan, Chief Architect at CTS, will explore the synergy of Big Data and IoT. First he will take a closer look at the Internet of Things and Big Data individually, in terms of what, which, why, where, when, who, how and how much. Then he will explore the relationship between IoT and Big Data. Specifically, he will drill down to how the 4Vs aspects intersect with IoT: Volume, Variety, Velocity and Value. In turn, Tony will analyze how the key components of IoT influence Big Data: Device, Connectivity, Context, and Intelligence. He will dive deep to the matrix...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Building actually breathes - immediately flagging overheating in a closet or over cooling in unoccupied ho...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud without worrying about any lock-in fears. In fact by having standard APIs for IaaS would help PaaS expl...
Organizations already struggle with the simple collection of data resulting from the proliferation of IoT, lacking the right infrastructure to manage it. They can't only rely on the cloud to collect and utilize this data because many applications still require dedicated infrastructure for security, redundancy, performance, etc. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Emil Sayegh, CEO of Codero Hosting, will discuss how in order to resolve the inherent issues, companies need to combine dedicated and cloud solutions through hybrid hosting – a sustainable solution for the data required to manage I...
Apps and devices shouldn't stop working when there's limited or no network connectivity. Learn how to bring data stored in a cloud database to the edge of the network (and back again) whenever an Internet connection is available. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate at IBM Cloud Data Services, will demonstrate techniques for replicating cloud databases with devices in order to build offline-first mobile or Internet of Things (IoT) apps that can provide a better, faster user experience, both offline and online. The focus of this talk will be on IBM Cloudant, Apa...
Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...

The most painful pain point for any business is the mismatch between supplies a...
The broad selection of hardware, the rapid evolution of operating systems and the time-to-market for mobile apps has been so rapid that new challenges for developers and engineers arise every day. Security, testing, hosting, and other metrics have to be considered through the process.

As enterprises capture more and more data of all types – structured, semi-structured, and unstructured – data discovery requirements for business intelligence (BI), Big Data, and predictive analytics initiatives grow more complex. A company’s ability to become data-driven and compete on analytics depends on the speed with which it can provision their analytics applications with all relevant information. The task of finding data has traditionally resided with IT, but now organizations increasingly turn towards data source discovery tools to find the right data, in context, for business users, d...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, will discuss the impact of technology on identity. Should we federate, or not? How should identity be secured? Who owns the identity? How is identity ...
