Hortonworks Data Platform is a massively scalable 100% open-source platform for processing and analyzing large volumes of data from many sources. It provides an open and highly extensible platform and maximizes the value of data in your business. HDP integrates with NetApp products to deliver highly reliable storage optimized for Hadoop.

Hortonworks Data Platform, powered by Apache Hadoop, is a comprehensive Hadoop-based software stack designed to store, process and analyze data in any format at any scale.

Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) includes the most popular and essential Apache Hadoop projects: the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS), MapReduce, Pig, Hive, HBase, and ZookeeperHDP also includes open-source technologies that make Hadoop more manageable, open, and extensible. It handles data from many sources and formats in a quick, easy, and cost-effective manner and provides an open, stable, and highly extensible platform, making it easier to integrate Hadoop with existing data architectures.

Unlike other Hadoop solutions that lock away management features within proprietary extensions, HDP bundles Ambari, an open-source installation and management system; HCatalog, a metadata management service for simplifying data sharing between Hadoop and enterprise information systems; and a complete set of open APIs for WebHDFS, Ambari, and HCatalog, all to make it easier for ISVs to integrate and extend Hadoop.

All of these components have been integrated and tested as part of the release process. Installation and configuration tools are also included to make it easier to install, deploy, and use HDP.
