Release of Hortonworks Data Platform 2.3

Released last week was Hortonworks' new enterprise Apache Hadoop solution: Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) 2.3. Hortonworks collaborated with developers to enhance the platform for them; finding out what tools they use currently and what features they request. The initial focus was on the SQL developer and the most common tasks they perform. The integrated experience Hortonworks designed:

  • Build SQL queries
  • Provide a visual explain plan
  • Allow an extended debugging experience when using the Tez execution engine
The improvements related to SQL also included
enhanced semantics for working with Apache Hive, a data warehouse infrastructure for Hadoop. "Hive adds time intervals and UNION semantics, 2.5x performance improvements and improved query scheduling, along with a more streamlined user interface for Hive within Ambari," the company said.
For Ambari, Hortonworks has also announced their version 2.1, which is a breakthrough configuration and customization experience.

In HDP 2.3,there is added security and governance enhancements that tune HDP 2.3 for enterprise use. All the collaboration with developers has not only brought new features, but also solved a lot of the issues across Apache Hadoop and other related projects. Find out all of the latest improvements on ADT Mag.
