Since the announcement of Pivotal HD & HAWQ on February 25th, we’ve been encouraged by the positive reception from customers, partners, and the market. Pivotal HD is at the core of the data fabric vision we laid out at EMC World, and we strongly believe that the market is primed for our enterprise-ready Hadoop distribution featuring HAWQ, a powerful SQL query engine. Today, we’re proud to announce that we’re making Pivotal HD available for download.
Pivotal HD is a 100% Apache-compatible Hadoop distribution featuring a fully SQL compliant query engine for processing data stored in Hadoop. By adding rich, mature SQL processing, Pivotal HD allows enterprises to simplify development, expand Hadoop’s capabilities, increase productivity, and cut costs. It has been tested for scale on the 1000 node Pivotal Analytics Workbench to ensure that the stack works flawlessly in large enterprise deployments.You can learn more at: http://blog.gopivotal.com/products/pivotal-hd-ga#sthash.hmSYbyQz.dpuf
