Allow enterprises to efficiently automate the launching of Hadoop clusters.

It is more and more encouraging to observe that: enterprises increasingly adopt Hadoop as the foundation of their centralized data architectures, and there is a growing need to simplify and better control the deployment of new Hadoop clusters.
Automated Apache Hadoop deployment across any cloud environment is a game-changer when it comes to productivity, scalability, flexibility, security and performance.
In this momentum, salutes the incorporation of SequenceIQ technology into the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP™).
Meaning inter alia that: henceforth you have an automated solution for launching on-demand Hadoop clusters in the cloud or to any environment that supports Docker containers. You can launch HDP into any major cloud platform, including Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform and OpenStack.
