Ironside & Hortonworks

Establishing Hadoop as the foundational technology of the modern enterprise data architecture.

Drive Transformational Change

Ironside has partnered with Hortonworks to provide our clients with solutions that scale with the demands of your Big Data applications. Hortonworks is the only 100-percent open source software provider to develop, distribute and support an Apache Hadoop platform explicitly architected, built and tested for enterprise-grade deployments.

Ironside utilizes Hadoop & Big Data frameworks to build enterprise data processing applications and scalable capabilities. This includes both capability and use-case driven initiatives, such as: big data visualization and BI, data lakes/reservoirs, data science sandboxes, logical data warehouse architecture, and all forms of large scale batch and stream processing for enterprise data integration or predictive model deployment (scoring engines, real-time customer engagement, etc).


Complete & Open

HDP is built in the open. Go with the standard and take advantage of the latest innovation being delivered by Hortonworks and the open-source community. All our work is contributed into the wide array of projects governed by the Apache Software Foundation.

Enterprise Ready

HDP is built for the enterprise. HDP includes rich data security, governance and operations functionality that works across component technologies and integrates with pre-existing EDW, RDBMS and MPP systems.

Fully Integrated

HDP integrates with, and augments, your existing applications and systems so that you can take advantage of Hadoop with only minimal change to existing data architectures and skillsets. Deploy HDP in-cloud, on-premise or from an appliance across both Linux and Windows.

Developed by the original architects,

builders and operators of Hadoop, Hortonworks stewards the core and delivers the critical services required by the enterprise to reliably and effectively run Hadoop at scale. Our distribution, Hortonworks Data Platform, provides an open and stable foundation for enterprises and a growing ecosystem to build and deploy big data solutions. Hortonworks also provides unmatched technical support, training and certification programs.
