Cloudera, Hortonworks Update Big Data Platforms

Big Data heavyweights Cloudera and Hortonworks each upgraded their products last week.

Cloudera announced that its Cloudera Enterprise 5 data management platform was generally available, while Hortonworks announced its Hortonworks Data Platform 2.1 was available as a technical preview.

The two companies, along with MapR, have been battling for supremacy in the exploding Big Data market and sometimes trading barbs back and forth. They each take different approaches, with Hortonworks concentrating on improving core Hadoop products and Cloudera focusing on providing a suite of products constituting an “enterprise data hub.”
