Test Drive MapR on Amazon Web Services
The MapR Test Drive for Hadoop on AWS provides an extremely quick and easy way for developers, administrators and business users to experience the power of the MapR Distribution including Apache Hadoop. The test drive features Apache Drill, which truly democratizes and accelerates access to data and insights by allowing you to apply a full SQL skill set to explore structured as well as semi-structured data and use existing visualization tools to refine and interpret the results.
The test drive includes a tutorial that walks you through the straightforward steps required to query data stored in a MapR cluster using Drill, and extract insights and visualize the findings using Tableau, a leading visualization tool that is part of the broader ecosystem. MapR has developed sample data and a demo that bring these capabilities to life in an interactive experience that involves a fully functional Hadoop cluster running on pre-configured Amazon EC2 instances.
