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.

Hyperparameter Tuning with MLflow

Joseph Bradley shows how you can perform hyperparameter tuning of an MLlib model with MLflow: Apache Spark MLlib users often tune hyperparameters using MLlib’s built-in tools CrossValidator and TrainValidationSplit.  These use grid search to try out a user-specified set of hyperparameter values; see the Spark docs on tuning for more info. Databricks Runtime 5.3 and 5.3 ML and above support […]
