|By Business Wire
|June 3, 2014 11:01 AM EDT
Technologies, Inc., provider of the top-ranked distribution for
Apache™ Hadoop®, and Syncsort,
a global leader in Big Data software, today announced at Hadoop
Summit a partnership enabling mission-critical data and processing
to be offloaded from legacy systems into a secure, enterprise-ready
Hadoop platform, driving savings without compromising reliability or
As part of this agreement, the high-performance, highly scalable and
easy-to-use Hadoop extract/transform/load (ETL) software, Syncsort
DMX-H, is now certified with the MapR Distribution for Apache Hadoop.
Customers can cost-effectively optimize data warehouses and expensive
legacy platforms by offloading heavy processing into a secure and
reliable Hadoop environment. Data-driven organizations can also avoid
the expertise gap in older systems by migrating to an increasingly
popular, modern data architecture.
The partnership is already adding value for customers. Leading internet
analytics company comScore is leveraging the MapR and Syncsort
integration to offload critical data into production-proven Hadoop, to
increase performance while lowering costs.
“With MapR, we get scale, performance, and significant cost savings, all
while retaining the level of reliability that we had with our previous
systems,” said Mike Brown, CTO, comScore. “The MapR and Syncsort
integration lets us process our data even faster than before, and allows
us to bring new applications to market rapidly.”
Experian, the global leader in information services, sees tremendous
benefits from the MapR and Syncsort integration. “With the help of
enterprise-grade Hadoop solutions from MapR and Syncsort, offloading
data from mainframe and SAN systems has increased our performance at
reduced costs,” said Tom Thomas, IT director, Experian.
"The MapR Distribution is a proven platform with reliable features that
enable us to maximize resources, support disaster recovery and high
availability, and deliver data with fast performance."
According to Bryan Ashley, vice president of worldwide business
development, Syncsort, “As more of our customers deploy Hadoop and look
to bring critical data to this new computing paradigm, they require a
unified platform with the same enterprise-grade capabilities and
reliability available on their existing legacy systems. As proven with
joint customers, our integration with MapR provides this level of
stability and processing power.”
“We see many businesses that recognize the cost and capability
advantages of shifting from legacy systems to modern architectures,”
said Jon Posnik, vice president of business development, MapR
Technologies. “Our partnership with Syncsort gives customers a complete
solution for easily migrating their critical business data to the MapR
Distribution for Hadoop.”
MapR and Syncsort will host a webcast on July 9. Subject matter experts
from both companies will show how customers can leverage data from
legacy systems including data warehouses and mainframes in Hadoop. The
session will feature a customer case study, which explores the
challenges and considerations for selecting an enterprise data hub/data
lake and data integration solution. For more information and to

A free trial of Syncsort DMX-h will be available on the MapR App
Gallery, which can be found here.

The increasing popularity of the Internet of Things necessitates that our physical and cognitive relationship with wearable technology will change rapidly in the near future. This advent means logging has become a thing of the past. Before, it was on us to track our own data, but now that data is automatically available. What does this mean for mHealth and the "connected" body?

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time.

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited.
