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.”

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics.
