San Jose, CA

Nearly 20% of MapR customers surveyed operate over 50 applications on a single Hadoop cluster

 MapR Technologies, Inc., provider of the top-ranked distribution for Apache™ Hadoop®, today announced over 100% bookings increase in the six month period ending March 31, 2015, compared to the preceding six months. The MapR growth is spurred by its unique architectural approach to supporting big and fast data – to collect, store and process vast amounts of info on one cluster for continuous, real-time access. 

To accelerate the adoption of Hadoop by organizations worldwide, MapR launched several key offerings in Q1, including free Hadoop On-Demand Training­­, in which over 10,000 developers, analysts and administrators enrolled in the first 30 days.  MapR also introduced Quick Start Solutions  to address commonly-implemented and high-value Hadoop use cases for customers to achieve faster time-to-value. 

“The solid growth for MapR validates the benefits brought on from embracing the open source community and building an innovative Hadoop data platform,” said John Schroeder, chief executive officer and co-founder of MapR. “We continue to differentiate ourselves with a proven business model, unique software, and a world-class team that is dedicated to partnering with customers to help them take advantage of expanding Hadoop into real-time, mission critical workloads.” 

In a survey of MapR customers worldwide conducted in March 2015, TechValidate, an independent research organization, found that 96% of MapR customers run multiple use cases on a single Hadoop cluster, with nearly 20% deploying over 50 use cases on a single cluster. According to survey results, 73% of customers deployed new products or services leveraging the MapR Distribution and 59% benefitted from reduced costs.  Additionally, 72% of respondents cited the need for Hadoop to handle both big and fast data on a single cluster. The ability to deliver these required capabilities is a core strength of the MapR Distribution.
