Founder, Hortonworks, Inc.
With the release of Apache Hadoop 2 and YARN in 2013, Hadoop moved past its humble roots as a web-scale, batch-only data processing system towards becoming an enterprise data platform capable of supporting any application, any data, anywhere. Innovative community efforts have enabled a rich world of real-time, interactive and batch applications running simultaneously against shared datasets. Enterprises can confidently manage, govern, and secure new data sources and traditional data sets in a seamless and centralized way on Linux or Windows, on-premises or in the cloud.
