MapR Technologies Announces HP Vertica Analytics Platform on MapR
Santa Clara, CA

Optimized, interactive SQL-on-Hadoop solution provides organizations fast value from Big Data analytics

MapR Technologies, Inc. the leader in Apache™ Hadoop® technology for Big Data deployments, today announced the early access release of the new HP Vertica Analytics Platform on MapR at the O’Reilly Strata Conference: Making Data Work. This high-performance, interactive SQL-on-Hadoop solution tightly integrates HP Vertica’s high-performance analytic platform directly on MapR’s enterprise-grade distribution for Hadoop. It provides 100% ANSI SQL-compliance, with advanced interactive analytic capabilities, and deep business intelligence (BI) and ETL tool support to improve analyst productivity through expanded exploration of semi-structured data as well as traditional structured data.

“Organizations embracing Hadoop have been struggling to empower large groups of business analysts who require sophisticated SQL and BI tools to do their jobs, but feel hand-cuffed when using incomplete, SQL-like approaches,” said John Schroeder, CEO and cofounder, MapR Technologies. “Providing HP Vertica’s very high-performance and rich SQL and built-in analytic functions on MapR’s best-of-breed platform for Hadoop sets business analysts free to do faster, interactive analytics from data harnessed by Hadoop.”

“HP Vertica Analytics Platform on MapR is a great example of a true Big Data architecture, where powerful analytics and SQL are tightly integrated with the full power and breadth of data in Hadoop, giving customers new insights to their business,” said Colin Mahony, VP and general manager, HP Vertica. “This combination of industry-leading platforms provides organizations with an integrated solution that increases performance and reliability with a smaller data center footprint, eliminating technology limits that often force businesses to make compromises.”
