Hortonworks to Acquire Onyara for Apache NiFi Expertise

Hortonworks agreed to acquire Onyara, Inc., the creator of and key contributor to Apache NiFi, a top-level open source project. Financial terms were not disclosed.


Hortonworks,  which offers enterprise Apache Hadoop solutions, said the deal will help its customers to automate and secure data flows and to collect, conduct and curate real-time business insights and actions derived from data in motion. As a result of the acquisition, Hortonworks is introducing Hortonworks DataFlow powered by Apache NiFi which is complementary to its Open Enterprise Hadoop platform, Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP).

Apache NiFi was made available through the NSA Technology Transfer Program in the fall of 2014. Over the past eight years, Onyara’s engineers were the key contributors to the U.S. government software project that evolved into Apache NiFi. In July 2015, NiFi became a Top-Level Project, signifying that its community and technology have been successfully governed under the Apache Software Foundation.

“Hortonworks is focused on doing everything possible to enable our customers to transform their business through data-driven insights and actions,” said Rob Bearden, chief executive officer at Hortonworks. “Onyara’s impressive work on security and simplicity in NiFi, combined with their commitment to open source makes for a perfect addition to our technology team.”
