Linux vendor Red Hat is expanding its partnership with Big Data Hadoop vendor Hortonworks today. The expanded partnership includes the delivery of the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) Plug-in for Red Hat storage.
“The HDP Plug-in for Red Hat Storage has been in the upstream community until today’s announcement of the beta software version of the HDP Plug-in for Red Hat Storage for enterprises,” Ranga Rangachari, Red Hat’s vice president and general manager, Storage and Big Data, told Enterprise Apps Today. “Beta customers will receive support from Red Hat and Hortonworks, rather than the open source community.”
Red Hat Storage isn’t the only place where the Linux vendor is partnering with Hortonworks. There are also solutions leveraging Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) as well as the JBoss Data Virtualization solution. Rangachari noted that neither HDP with Red Hat Enterprise Linux with OpenJDK nor the JBoss Data Virtualization connector for HDP are bundled offerings
