Team of rivals: Hortonworks, Pivotal join up for Hadoop project
See the original posting on JavaWorld
When it comes to the Hadoop data platform, Hortonworks and Pivotal could scarcely have more dissimilar approaches. The former prides itself on being a non-proprietary, pure open source product; the latter touts its utility and power as an enterprise data system.
But the two can agree on one point: the value of the underlying open source projects comprising Hadoop. To that end, Hortonworks and Pivotal are planning to collaborate on the Apache Ambari project to contribute a component that handles provisioning, monitoring, and management within Hadoop.
