Hortonworks Data Platform: Key Features

High Availability
Hortonworks is the only vendor to deliver High Availability on with Hadoop 1.0 — the most stable version of Hadoop. Our relationships with VMware and Red Hat allow you to use reliable and proven HA tools with Hadoop to implement a trusted HA solution.

Capacity Scheduling and Multi-Tenancy
HDP is the only distribution to provide multi-tenancy and both fair and capacity scheduling for a Hadoop cluster.

Metadata Services & HCatalog
HCatalog provides metadata services and a REST interface that opens a SQL-like interface to Hadoop. Hortonworks created HCatalog and this project is key for providing a consistent integration point for applications to interact with Hadoop. HDP is the only distribution to include HCatalog.

Open Source Cluster Management: Apache Ambari
HDP includes Apache Ambari, the only open source management and monitoring tool available for Hadoop. Ambari is included for free and uses existing, well-known protocols so that it can integrate with your existing management tools and monitoring consoles.

Data Integration Services
HDP includes Talend Open Studio for Big Data, the leading open source integration tool for easily connecting Hadoop to hundreds of data systems without having to write code.

ODBC Done Right
The Hortonworks Hive is a free high-performance ODBC driver that includes a SQL engine so you can interact with nearly every BI tool, including all SQL-92 interfaces.
