MapR is definitely up to some interesting partnerships. Last year it announced a partnership with EMC for Greenplum HD Enterprise Edition, then this year MapR became available on Amazon Elastic MapReduce and Google Compute Engine. And today MapR and Drawn to Scale, creator of the real-time database for Hadoop Spire, are announcing a new partnership.
Bradford Stephens (CEO, Drawn to Scale):
MapR provides the fastest, most reliable Hadoop for our customers. We are thrilled to work with MapR to deliver M3 as part of Spire as the first real-time database for Hadoop.
Jack Norris (VP of marketing, MapR Technologies):
Real-time SQL on Hadoop is a big gap in the market that is addressed by Spire. Spire is a complementary solution to our products and it made sense to work with Drawn to Scale to make it easier for customers to deploy M3, pre-integrated with Spire, for real-time SQL-based workloads.
It might sound strange coming from me, but MapR is making quite some big steps towards becoming the de facto standard for Hadoop. I’m looking forward to seeing the reactions from Cloudera and Hortonworks.
