Services and training aim to help businesses and developers.
Hortonworks, a leading creator and distributor of Apache Hadoop for the enterprise, announced an update to their Global Professional Services on June 15. The update will support customers who use Hortonworks’ Connected Data Platform, which leverages Hadoop for analyzing data at rest and Apache NiFi, Kafka and Storm for managing data in motion.
According to the announcement the new update offers services to customers at several different levels:
Foundation Level: Consists of the new “quick start” service for Hortonworks Data Flow, which manages data in motion, in addition to ETL Onboard and Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), which analyzes data at rest. The foundation service is designed for environments with just one or two use case scenarios.
Accelerator Level: Designed for customers with an established infrastructure on Hortonworks Connected Data Platforms who are looking for consistency with emphasis on data migration, data optimization, and platform architecture along with managed services.
Advanced Level: Consists of the “Data and Analytics Center of Excellence” and data science advisory services. Designed for users who are undergoing change within their environment and have corporate strategies that are derived by business outcomes.
New training offerings include HDP Essentials, online instructor training designed to help foster an understanding of the Hadoop ecosystem, and advanced training for Apache Spark and Python developers who are looking for a certification path to Hortonworks Professional Developer status, the company stated.
