Pivotal, Hortonworks Collaborate On Hadoop Management

Pivotal pledges collaboration on Apache Ambari, Hortonwork's favored tools for managing and monitoring Hadoop.

When proprietary effort stalls, time for the open source option
Pivotal's parents are strongly proprietary companies, and strong proprietary companies resort to open source after they realize their attempt to go their own way has stalled or failed and there's little more to be gained from continuing on their own. Pivotal is spread somewhat thin and has seen the light of cooperative effort, especially versus the likes of Mapr and Cloudera, when it comes to Hadoop management.

"Enemy of my enemy' or just saving bucks on development
Analyst Tony Baer of Ovum Tweeted something about this being a "enemy of my enemy" alliance between Pivotal and Hortnoworks, but I suspect it's also just a cost-saving move for Pivotal on something that shouldn't be differentiating for them. Pivotal's differentiation will come with its whole cloud and next-gen app development approach as well as with HAWQ and GemFire XD. I can't see it making much money on management software, so why waste people hours on maintaining that software separately. Just develop hooks to Ambari for those things like HAWQ and GemFire XD that need to be managed as part of Hadoop.
