Teradata + MapR = Best-In-Class Big Data Analytics

At A Glance

Teradata is the world’s largest company focused on analytic data solutions through integrated data warehousing, big data analytics, and business applications.

Big Data Analytics and Operations with Massive Scalability

Hadoop and the data warehouse are complementary when the right products for right use-case are chosen. A careful selection of the right products for the appropriate use cases can ensure “best-in-class” results.

MapR and Teradata have partnered to deliver the MapR Converged Data Platform with the industry-leading data warehouse platform to address business-critical use cases. MapR shares a best-of-breed view on work- load-specific systems, and fully supports the Teradata Unified Data Architecture (UDA). The joint solution provides an optimized approach to data warehousing and analytics. According to Gartner, “The hype around replacing the data ware- house gives way to the more sensible strategy of augmenting it ... The influence of the logical data warehouse has created a situation in which multiple repository strategies are now expected.”1

Robust Architecture

The MapR Distribution including Apache Hadoop provides enterprise-grade, reliable data staging, processing, and flexible programming/analytics along with SQL on schema-less data. Teradata delivers best-in-class SQL support and per- formance, user concurrency, fine-grained security, data quality and governance.

Working in unison, Teradata and MapR enable an optimized data architecture that lets you move raw data in Hadoop using NFS, with no special APIs required. You can explore data instantly in Hadoop with Apache Drill, find new insights, and then load into Teradata for enterprise reporting and BI with standard SQL and high user concurrency. In addition, MapR provides unique in-Hadoop NoSQL database capabilities for operational analytics such as fraud detection and pre- vention, event processing, and real-time customer targeting.

Why Teradata on MapR is Unique

MapR and Teradata bring together the power of two “best-in-class” enterprise- grade architecture solutions. MapR provides 2-7x higher performance than other Hadoop distributions. And, with its built-in 24x7 high availability, data protection, disaster recovery, and resilience, MapR provides the only truly enterprise-grade Hadoop distribution for Teradata customers. MapR brings many unique features to Teradata customers:

The joint solution provides the ingestion of high-speed streaming data, with- out complex layers of data management and storage limitations. In addition, Teradata Loom®, a solution for effective data and metadata management on MapR Hadoop, empowers business analysts, data scientists, and data engineers to work interactively with data in the MapR Distribution for Hadoop to prepare it for advanced analytics.
