"Hortonworks Data Platform 2.0 GA release is a huge milestone of progress for Hadoop. Through our use of the HDP 2.0 and through the efforts of both AT&T and Hortonworks, AT&T is developing some of the top Hadoop experts in the world, along with leading-edge technology," said
With Hadoop 2, Apache Hadoop YARN serves as the Hadoop operating system, and takes Hadoop beyond simply a single-use data platform for batch processing to a multi-use platform that enables batch, interactive, online and stream processing. By acting as the primary resource manager and mediator of access to data stored in HDFS, YARN enables enterprises to store data in a single place and interact with it in multiple ways simultaneously and with consistent levels of service.
The Stinger Initiative was launched at the beginning of 2013 as a broad community-based effort to enhance the speed, scale and breadth of SQL semantics supported by Apache Hive. By including the recently released Hive 0.12 which is the culmination of phase 2 of the Stinger Initiative, HDP 2.0 represents a significant step forward for Hive, the de-facto standard for SQL access in Hadoop today and the only SQL interface designed for queries that scale from gigabytes to petabytes.
"The YARN-based architecture of HDP 2.0 delivers on our mission to enable the modern data architecture by providing an enterprise Hadoop platform that deeply integrates with existing and future data center technologies," said
