Talend Open Studio for Big Data joins the Hortonworks Data Platform

February 29, 2012 --

At the same time we announced Talend Open Studio for Big Data, our friends at Hortonworks – leading contributor to Apache Hadoop projects – have announced that they have selected Talend Open Studio for Big Data to be bundled as part of Hortonworks Data Platform, simplifying the movement of data between Apache Hadoop and enterprise data systems and accelerating the adoption of Apache Hadoop.

Hortonworks Data Platform, powered by Apache Hadoop, is a massively scalable 100% open source platform for storing, processing, and analyzing large volumes of data. It is designed to deal with data from many sources and formats in a quick, easy, and cost-effective manner.

Hortonworks Data Platform provides an open, stable and highly extensible platform that makes it easier to integrate Apache Hadoop with existing data architectures and maximize the value of the data flowing through the business.

Thanks to Talend Open Studio for Big Data, users of Hortonworks Data Platform will be able to greatly simplify the deployment of Hadoop.  Talend Open Studio for Big Data abstracts the complexity of Hadoop and its “interfaces” (specifically Pig, HBase, Sqoop and Hive) by allowing graphical design of the big data integration jobs, and generating native MapReduce code. It alleviates the need for a deep, technical understanding of MapReduce and the different components of Hadoop. And, equally important, it brings to the table over 450 connectors to “the rest” of the information system – integrating enterprise data into Hadoop.

Hortonworks’ choice of Talend is a clear testament to the traction and recognition that Talend has been getting on the integration market, but also of the technical superiority of the solution. Our engineering teams have been working closely together to optimize the combined stack, and will continue to collaborate on further improvements to the solution.

Stay tuned for more.
