MapR & Hadapt Offer Combined Hadoop Solution

MapR Technologies and Hadapt have cut a partnership so joint customers can combine the MapR Distribution for Hadoop with Hadapt's Interactive Query capabilities to analyze all types of data - structured, semi-structured and unstructured - in a single enterprise platform without connectors, complexities or rigid structure.

Hadapt is the only data analytics platform natively integrating SQL with Apache Hadoop.

Hadapt marketing VP Scott Howser said, "We have already brought interactive applications on Hadoop to market and now, through this partnership with MapR, we are providing customers additional ease-of-use, performance and reliability advantages."

The combined solution is supposed to alleviate the barriers to entry in the traditional enterprise environment with features like no single point-of-failure and disaster recovery. With flexibility in deployment methodologies, enterprises should be able to accelerate Hadoop deployments into production.
