Cloudera And Hortonworks Officially Merged

Arun Murthy gives the used-to-be-Hortonworks perspective on the now-official merger of Cloudera and Hortonworks:

Our merger did not arise out of the blue. Our respective missions were well aligned, and together the new Cloudera has the scale it needs to service the constantly changing needs of the world’s most demanding organizations and to grow even more dominant in the market.
New open-source standards such as Kubernetes, container technology and the growing adoption of cloud-native architectures are major parts of Cloudera’s strategy.  Our primary initiative out of the gate is to deliver a 100-percent open-source unified platform, which leverages the best features of Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) 3.0 and Cloudera’s CDH 6.0. Cloud-native and built for any cloud – with a public cloud experience across all clouds – the unified platform embodies our shared “cloud everywhere” vision.

I’m more a fan of the Hortonworks tooling like Ambari than I am of Cloudera’s alternatives, so it will be interesting to see what happens going forward. The good news for recalcitrant types like me is that HDP will be around for a couple of years yet.

Gwen Shapiro takes us through a scenario where database-first writes for event streaming makes the most sense: Note that the DB does quite a lot for you: it enforces serializability, locks, your logical constraints, etc. If the DB is distributed (Vitesse, Cockroach, Spanner, Yugabyte), it does even more. If you were to go Kafka-first… well, […]
