Concurrent has also forged close strategic partnerships with Hortonworks (one of the primary sponsors of Apache Hadoop) and Databricks (the primary sponsor of Apache Spark). Hortonworks will now integrate the Cascading SDK with its Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) distribution of Hadoop, and will certify and support the SDK with HDP. Cascading will also support Apache Spark in a future release and notes that companies using Cascading will be able to seamlessly run their applications on Spark.
Concurrent says Cascading 3.0 will be available early this summer and freely licensable under the Apache 2.0 License Agreement.
