Teradata and MapR to target the big data market

Teradata
and MapR Technologies expanded their partnership that covers technology
integration, road map alignment, and a unified go-to-market offering. The two
companies are optimizing integration of the MapR Distribution within the
Teradata Unified Data Architecture, with an eye at the increasing big data
market. They plan to provide customers more choices when combining Teradata’s data
warehousing with Hadoop, discovery platforms, and NoSQL options to drive
analytic innovation.

Teradata

Teradata Unified Data Architecture, with an eye at the increasing big data
market. They plan to provide customers more choices when combining Teradata’s data
warehousing with Hadoop, discovery platforms, and NoSQL options to drive
analytic innovation.

The
agreement also provides for Teradata to resell MapR software, professional
services, and customer support and serve as the 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 data fabric that both optimizes and simplifies
processing across Teradata Databases, Hadoop distributions, the Teradata Aster
Discovery Platform, NoSQL databases, and other technologies.

“Customers
who have invested in both MapR and Teradata solutions have requested
integration, so now is the right time to expand our partnership. As customers
continue to build out analytic architectures, they want flexibility and choice,
and Teradata’s Unified Data Architecture is the most sophisticated and open big
data ecosystem,” said Scott Gnau, president, Teradata Labs.

“Hadoop
is a must-have technology, enabling sophisticated data warehouse users with
means to leverage even more data,” said John Schroeder, chief executive
officer and co-founder, MapR Technologies. “As companies move Hadoop into
production environments, customers are choosing the MapR Distribution because
it brings high performance and reliability to Hadoop – just like Teradata
customers have come to expect from their integrated data warehouse and analytic
platforms.”

MapR
brings dependability, ease-of-use to Hadoop, and NoSQL database applications in
one distribution for Hadoop that is recognized by independent research firms as
one of the best Hadoop deployments. Teradata products and expertise in big data
are compelling to many MapR customers and the expanded partnership allows
companies to combine Teradata’s QueryGrid, Teradata Loom, and Teradata
Consulting Services with the MapR Distribution including Hadoop. Teradata
Consulting Services provides Hadoop architecture, data cleansing, data
transformation, and data science skills that are in high demand for big data
projects.

“The
entire market is starting to realize that data is everywhere and an agile
ecosystem is paramount,” said Arvind Bedi, director IT, Cisco Systems,
Inc. “The marketplace demands the flexibility to meet specific needs and
decisions are being made based on how well the ecosystem players are
integrated.”
