Drawn to Scale: All content tagged as Drawn to Scale in NoSQL databases and polyglot persistence
For the beginning of the week, some good and bad news:
Tableau Software’s IPO is considered successful.
The company didn’t really need more capital to operate, Chabot said, but one of the primary drivers was to raise awareness of the company. It has about 12,000 customers, he said, but there are millions more possible users. As part of attracting them, the company is going to expand globally and is working to improve its reach across mobile devices, the cloud and the Mac operating system.
Bradford Stephens announces that Drawn to Scale closes. Drawn to Scale was building a SQL-on-HBase solution and according to the post it already had paying customers.
It seemed we had everything going for us — paid customers such as American Express, a major telecom, Flurry, and 4 others. Our technology worked brilliantly, we had a big hiring pipeline, and we had great media presence against our competitors who raised 10-100x more cash.
Yet five days before we signed term sheets for a big A round or sold the company, we started getting hit by a series of black swans — and we just didn’t have what we needed to recover.
I didn’t talk to Bradford Stephens, but I assume the black swans are all the recent big name announcements related to SQL-on-Hadoop.
✚ Bradford, I’m sad to learn that the Drawn to Scale adventure has ended. But an end is just a new beginning. Good luck!

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.
