Pivotal HAWQ SQL will be available on Hadoop engine.


Pivotal HAWQ has been made available on the Hortonworks Data Platform, allowing for SQL on the Hadoop engine to be leveraged by enterprises.

Sundeep Madra, Vice President, Data Product Group, Pivotal, said: "Pivotal HAWQ brings a maturity to SQL on Hadoop processing that leverages a decade worth of product development effort that was invested in Pivotal Greenplum Database."

"What makes this announcement so exciting is bringing Pivotal HAWQ closer to a common Hadoop core. We look forward to customers who are invested in the Hortonworks Data platform to get their hands on Pivotal HAWQ and take advantage of all the benefits the world’s most advanced, and fastest, SQL on Hadoop engine."

Pivotal HAWQ’s full SQL compliance for analytic workloads can address the business needs of enterprise more quickly than with the traditional Hadoop stack and has been given the HDP Certification.
