Happy Birthday Hortonworks!

Happy Birthday Hortonworks! by Eric Baldeschwieler.

From the post:

Last week was an important milestone for Hortonworks: our one year anniversary. Given all of the activity around Apache Hadoop and Hortonworks, it’s hard to believe it’s only been one year. In honor of our birthday, I thought I would look back to contrast our original intentions with what we delivered over the past year.

Hortonworks was officially announced at Hadoop Summit 2011. At that time, I published a blog on the Hortonworks Manifesto. This blog told our story, including where we came from, what motivated the original founders and what our plans were for the company. I wanted to address many of the important statements from this blog here:

Read the post in full to see Eric’s take on:

Hortonworks was formed to “accelerate the development and adoption of Apache Hadoop”. …

We are “committed to open source” and commit that “all core code will remain open source”. …

We will “make Apache Hadoop easier to install, manage and use”. …

We will “make Apache Hadoop more robust”. …

We will “make Apache Hadoop easier to integrate and extend”. …

We will “deliver an ever-increasing array of services aimed at improving the Hadoop experience and support in the growing needs of enterprises, systems integrators and technology vendors”. …

This has been a banner year for Hortonworks, the Hadoop ecosystem and everyone concerned with this rapidly developing area!

We are looking forward to the next year being more of same, except more so!
