Where is MapR today?
- MapR raised a total of $59mil.
- According to John Schroeder (CEO) “92% of MapR customers pay primarely for licenses and not for ancillary services and support”.
- According to Wikibon, MapR had $23mil. revenue in 2012, 49% of which coming from services (nb: this seem to contradict the above point)
- Support for MapR installations is offered by Accenture and Booz Allen Hamilton
How will MapR use the new capital?
With the new funding, the company plans to invest in research & development, and expand into Asia.
How is MapR seeing its competitors?
John Schroeder (CEO):
“Our competitors’ model is very cash intensive and you have to wonder whether or not they’ll ever be cash-flow positive”.
Cloudera has raised until now $141mil:
- Series A: $5mil
- Series B: $6mil
- Series C: $25mil
- Series D: $40mil
- Series E: $65mil
According to this, Cloudera raised $36mil in the first 3 rounds. I couldn’t find any official data about the capital raised by Hortonworks, but the number I’ve seen in a couple of places is $50mil. So far MapR raised $59mil.

The short answer is there is only one Apache Hadoop distribution.
The long answer is that there are many distributions that include Apache Hadoop or are claiming compatibility with Apache Hadoop.
The oldest and probably most popular: Cloudera’s Distribution of Hadoop (CDH)
The 100% open source: Hortonworks Data Platform.
The prioprietary: MapR.
The blue one: IBM InfoSphere BigInsights.
There’s also the version Facebook’s running on their cluster which includes Facebook Corona: a different approach to job scheduling and resource management.
But this list is not complete as it doesn’t include appliances featuring Hadoop. In this category we have:
- Oracle’s Big Data appliance featuring Cloudera’s Distribution of Hadoop
- Netapp’s Hadooplers
- EMC Greenplum DCA
- Teradata Aster Discovery Platform featuring Hortonworks’s Hadoop Data Platform
- Data Direct Networks (DDN)
I hope I didn’t miss any important ones1. As a conclusion for this list, my question is: who is actually benefiting from all these distributions?
I left aside for now Hadoop-as-a-Service. ↩

Besides the well established Amazon Elastic MapReduce and Windows Azure HDInsight, there are two new Hadoop-in-the-cloud services:
- Skytap which offers Cloudera CDH4 Enterprise experimentation clusters up to 50 nodes
- Joyent Solution for Hadoop which is offered in partnership with Hortonworks. I hesitated for a bit to mention Joyent considering the page says “Sign up now to talk to a Joyent Solutions Architect” which is anything but a cloud service.
