Hortonworks DataFlow 1.1 Released

Katie Kennedy

Hortonworks has announced that the 2nd release of their Hortonworks DataFlow (HDF) is now available. The Hortonworks DataFlow is designed to meet the practical challenges of collecting and moving data securely and efficiently. It is a data-source agnostic, real time data collection, and data flow management platform.

This 2nd release builds on the strength of the original version, that was released in September 2015. HDF 1.1 not only supports additional security models and improves the user experience, but also it increases user options for accessing and delivering data.

A few highlights of HDF Release 1.1 include:

  • Enhanced Security – Users and systems can now login to HDF using username and password based authentication with Active Directory or Directory Server.
  • Improved User experience – While building flows users will get more direct feedback on the validity of their flows, directly clear specific queues easily, and view images when clicking to content within a flow.
  • New data sources and destinations – Amongst numerous other extensions HDF can now receive and deliver from Syslog, Apache HBase, Azure Event Hub, and Couchbase.
