Engesser notes that the release of HDF 2.0 coincides with the addition of a new HDF Product Integration Certification program to the company's existing Hortonworks Partnerworks program. The certification program provides validation of pre-built integrations between leading enterprise technologies and HDF. It also includes testing and certification of processes to help ensure that partner software integrates with HDF.
"We're seeing a large partner ecosystem develop," Engesser says. "Partners can get certified and build their own connectors."
Some of the key partners collaborating with Hortonworks to certify joint solutions include Attunity, HPE Security, Impetus Technologies StreamAnalytix, SAS and Syncsort.
