SAN FRANCISCO, April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Hat Summit- Hortonworks, the leading contributor to and provider of enterprise Apache™ Hadoop®, today announced the latest addition to its joint engineering alliance with Red Hat Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, including integration of OpenShift, Red Hat's award-winning Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering, with Hortonworks Data Platform, bringing Hadoop to the open hybrid cloud. OpenShift integration with Hadoop will be highlighted at Red Hat Summit in San Francisco, April 14-17.
In February, Red Hat and Hortonworks announced a comprehensive open source initiative to deliver infrastructure solutions to bring 100-percent open source Hadoop to the hybrid cloud. OpenShift is the latest addition to the growing collaboration between Hortonworks and Red Hat and will enable customers to quickly and easily develop modern analytic applications in Hadoop.
With OpenShift and Hadoop, developers will have the ability to rapidly develop and deploy application stacks on Hortonworks Data Platform, enabling them to more easily exploit multiple data types, including: sensor and machine-generated data, server logs, social, clickstream, and geo-location data currently stored in Hadoop. Additionally, developers will be able to standardize their workflow and create repeatable processes for application delivery, streamlining application development while tapping into unprecedented insight and value from data stored in Hadoop.
"After announcing our expanded strategic alliance in February, we're excited to showcase the integration of Hortonworks Data Platform with Red Hat's OpenShift PaaS," said John Kreisa, vice president of strategic marketing, Hortonworks. "With more new data sources, enterprises need to uncover ways to rapidly develop applications that will help them derive more insight from their big data solutions. This latest advancement with Red Hat will provide our customers with improved tools to develop these data analytics applications that will drive businesses forward."
"As use cases for big data continue to grow, enterprise customers increasingly rely on big data-driven applications and analytics to power their business," said Chris Morgan, technical director, OpenShift ecosystem, Red Hat. "With OpenShift, our customers can start to expand development to next-generation use cases like the Internet-of-Things, where applications can tap into and make sense of sensor and machine-generated data, server logs, social, clickstream, geo-location data, and much more."

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
