Hadoop doesn't work properly on Power parts; various outstanding JIRAs related to porting the native code. IBMs not put in any real effort to address those or testing it —and until then worrying about HDP support is moot.

Apologies for the delay in responding and thanks for your interest for HDP on Power Systems.

Hortonworks and IBM are working on the release, which I hope will be available towards the end of this year.

It's possible to get involved as an early adopter if this is of interest to you?

There's also a webinar covering this topic later this month, details below:

"Delivering a Flexible IT Infrastructure for Analytics with HDP on IBM Power Systems"

November 30th, 2016 at 1:00 PM Eastern / 12:00 PM Central / 10:00 AM Pacific

Let me know if you're interested in the early adopter program

Best Regards
