MapR, Teradata Expand Hadoop-Based Analytics Partnership
The expanded partnership integrates the companies' technologies, aligns their product roadmaps, and will result in a unified set of products and services.Big data analytics and marketing applications maker Teradata and Hadoop provider MapR Technologies have deepened their business relationship. The two California companies announced Nov. 19 an expanded partnership that integrates their technologies, aligns their product roadmaps, and will result in a unified set of products and services. San Diego-based Teradata is optimizing integration of the MapR Distribution within its own Unified Data Architecture, which provides customers with more data analytics options when combining Teradata's data warehousing package with Hadoop, discovery platforms and NoSQL options. The agreement also provides for Teradata to resell MapR's software, professional services and customer support. As such, Teradata will serve as a single point of contact for customers that use both Teradata and MapR solutions.
Orchestration capabilities such as Teradata QueryGrid and Teradata Loom will be directly integrated with MapR software. QueryGrid is the seamless data fabric that optimizes processing across Teradata databases, Hadoop distributions, Teradata's Aster Discovery Platform and NoSQL databases.
