Read what leading technology partners have to say about the new enterprise-grade Apache Spark distribution from MapR:
“This is a great example of MapR’s continued commitment to open source Apache Spark. MapR was early to recognize the impact Spark would have on the big data landscape, and we are excited to see them extending the power of Spark for their enterprise customers with this announcement."
-- John Tripier, Senior Director of Business Development, Databricks
"MapR is advancing the adoption of Spark by delivering a complete Spark stack bundled with their reliable enterprise grade converged data platform. At Platfora we have embraced Spark as the underlying data processing engine for our Big Data Discovery platform and have seen tremendous results making big data useful and look forward to continuing our partnership with MapR."
-- Peter Schlampp, Vice President of Products, Platfora.
“Providing significant performance improvements over MapReduce, Spark is the tool of choice for data scientists and analyst to turn their data into real results. With Spark under the hood of Trifacta, we can now execute large-scale data transformations at interactive response rates. Our partnership with MapR brings the performance and flexibility of the Spark data processing engine to the world of data wrangling.”
-- Wei Zheng, Vice President of Products, Trifacta
“Organizations look to MapR’s Converged Data Platform to take advantage of Spark’s distributed in-memory storage for high performance processing across a variety of use cases, including fraud detection, sensor and IoT device analytics and consumer sentiment analysis. Spark Streaming is a fantastic tool, but writing and operationalizing Spark jobs can be difficult. At StreamSets we have built GUI-driven infrastructure that increases the productivity of data engineers plus provides needed visibility and control for operators, while tightly integrating with the MapR platform.”
-- Girish Pancha, CEO, StreamSets
“At Talend, we’ve teamed with MapR for a number of years and helped thousands of organizations with our advanced data integration platform that offers native support for Apache Spark and Spark Streaming. From fraud detection and predictive maintenance to personalized shopping experiences, Spark has become crucial for a growing number of organizations that want to make informed, real-time decisions.”
-- Ciaran Dynes, Vice President, Products, Talend
