“Deploying MapR from AWS Marketplace provides customers an easy on-ramp to high performance, enterprise-grade Hadoop in the AWS Cloud,” said Steve Wooledge, vice president, product marketing, MapR Technologies. “We’ve had an established relationship with AWS through the availability of MapR on EMR and now the addition of our products for purchase on AWS Marketplace expands options for customers who want to run real-time Hadoop applications in the AWS Cloud and impact their business as it happens.”

“We are pleased customers now have access to purchase and deploy the MapR Distribution product from AWS Marketplace,” said Dave McCann, vice president, AWS Marketplace, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “The rapidly expanding population of customers buying and deploying third-party software from AWS Marketplace can now benefit from more big data deployment options, while taking advantage of AWS’ global scale, reliability and rapid pace of innovation.”
