MapR Webcast to Feature Live Demo of HP Vertica Analytics Platform on MapR

MapR Technologies, Inc., provider of the top-ranked distribution for Apache™ Hadoop®, today announced a live webcast co-hosted with HP Vertica that will demonstrate the HP Vertica Analytics Platform on MapR on Tuesday, June 3. Subject matter experts from both companies will show how customers can leverage SQL-on-Hadoop. The session will include use cases, a live demo, and a discussion covering the challenges and solutions for SQL-on-Hadoop monitoring and managing.

The HP Vertica Analytics Platform on MapR, which is generally available, is a high-performance, interactive SQL-on-Hadoop solution that tightly integrates the HP Vertica data analytics platform with the enterprise-grade MapR Distribution for Apache Hadoop. All data can be explored in the Hadoop environment, and a unified management console enables monitoring and management of all services running on the same cluster. This enables faster insight from big data for customers by leveraging their existing SQL skills and business intelligence (BI) tools in a highly optimized and efficient environment.

“Unlocking hidden insights in big data by combining the enterprise-grade MapR Distribution for Hadoop with HP Vertica gives business users the fastest time to value by leveraging their existing SQL skills and built-in analytic functions,” said Jon Posnik, vice president of business development at MapR Technologies. “This partnership is a shining example of the new analytics stack, where the power of massively scalable and blazing-fast analytic platforms are tightly integrated and made available with the full breadth and scale of Hadoop.”

HP Vertica Analytics Platform on MapR provides 100% ANSI SQL compliance, with advanced interactive analytic capabilities, and deep BI and ETL tool support to improve analyst productivity through expanded exploration of semi-structured data as well as traditional structured data.

“HP recognizes the new go-to-market potential with the MapR enterprise-grade, production Hadoop platform,” said Chris Selland, vice president of marketing and business development at HP Vertica. “By integrating the HP Vertica Analytics Platform on MapR, our companies can provide powerful analytics and SQL tightly integrated with the full power and breadth of data in Hadoop, giving joint customers new and deeper insights more quickly to their business.”

The HP Vertica Analytics Platform on MapR optimizes SQL-on-Hadoop featuring:

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture.

Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities."

Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability.

We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
