@Tim Armstrong that is great !
Is the source now available ? and the documentation to build the source ?
I am pretty sure the community will simply rally around and build something up with enough pointers.
I agree with @PieterB hiding the base binaries is silly.
Did the HDP model have any failures ?
Enterprises which needed support bought it anyway.
Keeping it free increased adoption.
Can't agree more. if there is no open source, no one knows HDP or CDP. And no company would pay if there is no way to try. I can't install HDP for two month in our cluster and then destroy it.
