A new press release reports, “Hortonworks and RedHat today announced an Open Hybrid Architecture Initiative, a new collaborative effort the companies can use to build a common enterprise deployment model that is designed to enable big data workloads to run in a hybrid manner across on-premises, multi-cloud and edge architectures. As the initial phase of the initiative, the companies plan to work together to optimize Hortonworks Data Platform, Hortonworks DataFlow, Hortonworks DataPlane and IBM Cloud Private for Data for use on RedHat OpenShift, an industry-leading enterprise container and Kubernetes application platform. This can enable users to develop and deploy containerized big data workloads, ultimately making it easier for customers to manage data applications across hybrid cloud deployments. In addition, IBM and Hortonworks will extend their joint work to integrate key services offered through Hortonworks DataPlane with IBM Cloud Private for Data.”
The release goes on, “Enterprises are undergoing massive business model transformations, powered by the ability to process and analyze new types and tremendous amounts of data. As a result, many are moving to hybrid cloud environments that leverage lightweight microservices in the most efficient manner possible. Hortonworks and IBM previously announced a collaboration to help businesses accelerate data-driven decision-making. Today’s news builds upon that foundation with the intent to bring big data workloads to a modern and container-based foundation, enabling customers to deploy Hortonworks and IBM platforms into a hybrid cloud environment powered by Red Hat OpenShift.”
