Hortonworks Sandbox for HDP and HDF is your chance to get started on learning, developing, testing and trying out new features. Each download comes preconfigured with interactive tutorials, sample data and developments from the Apache community.

We are pleased to announce that Hortonworks DataFlow (HDF™) Version 2.0 is now generally available for download! As part of an Open and Connected Data Platforms offering from Hortonworks, HDF 2.0 provides a new level of enterprise integration for data in motion with an enterprise-ready offering of Apache NiFiKafka, and Storm integrated via Apache Ambari and Ranger.  

HDF 2.0 is a significant release which unlocks new capabilities:

  • Edge intelligence capturing data the second it’s born with ease through Apache MiNiFi: consider a situation where thousands of point of sale terminals, connected cars, network routers, set-top boxes, etc., need to move the data they produce consistently, reliably and securely.
  • Productivity enhancements via:
    • Ambari integration for streamlined deployment and configuration management.
    • More intuitive UI for managing real-time data flows based on Apache NiFi 1.0.
    • Reduced IT resources due to enhanced cluster management architecture supporting high availability of NiFi clusters with automated failover.
  • Collaboration capabilities for enterprise data sharing and visibility across teams: specifically, a multi-tenancy flow editing capability similar to the way that Google docs supports multiple simultaneous collaborators with differing degrees of viewing and editing rights.
  • Increased ecosystem connectivity with 170+ processors, 30% more than HDF 1.2.
  • Increased security options with integration with Apache Ranger for authorization control of Apache NiFi and fine-grained component level access control, as well as new security features of Apache Kafka 0.10.
  • 10x streaming analytics performance with Apache Storm 1.0.
