Supported Big Data platforms

In general, Talend certifies a specific release version for a given Big Data (Hadoop) Distribution vendor. These are typically what is recommended for use for that vendor. For incremental upgrades and service packs by a given vendor, Talend relies on the vendors' compatibility statements to ensure the proper running and execution of the Talend software. Where compatibility is stated, Talend also supports that version under our Support SLA. If an incompatibility should be verified by the Hadoop vendor, then Talend considers that a re-test and upgrade may be necessary.

If the Hadoop distribution you want to use is not yet supported and available in your Talend Studio, it may be available through an update. You can search for support information on the Talend Help Center .

If you are using a Cloudera or Hortonworks distribution, you can also add your distribution via some dynamic distribution settings in the Studio. The dynamic distributions added this way are generally minor versions of a Talend-certified major release of your distribution. Talend relies on the distribution vendors' compatibility statements to ensure the compatibility of the Studio with these minor versions and, by this measure, provides official support for the use cases that can be produced on these minor versions as well as on the Talend-certified versions.
  • On the version list of the distributions, some versions are labelled Builtin. These versions were added by Talend via the Dynamic distribution mechanism and delivered with the Studio when the Studio was released. They are certified by Talend, thus officially supported and ready to use.
