With our recent announcement of HP Vertica’s deployment onto MapR, we have already been flooded with questions about the integration.
One of the more frequent questions we’ve seen is, “What’s a typical use case?” While it’s difficult to give an exact answer because the pilot customers are doing many different things, I can easily list some of the successful characteristics:
Scrum development necessitates rapid deployments, and we believe that applies here too. With our reciprocal agreement with HP Vertica, both companies are able to offer a pre-integrated virtual machine. To download and get started with the MapR Sandbox for Hadoop and HP Vertica, click here.
You aren’t quite able to see the full power of either platform, but you will be up and running in a few minutes. The value that we can’t show in the Sandbox are disk management, horizontal scalability, and database management from the MCS. What you will get is a fully functional database and Hadoop distribution.
And yes, the Vertica files live completely on the MapR Distributed File and Object Store.
With what’s been happening in the ecosystem, it goes without saying that this is an important direction for our products. I’ve spent a lot of time with Vertica and MapR, and even I was surprised at how well these two products work together. Sharing a few highlights:
While we have started the integration of our two products, I can assure you that we have many more feature ideas we are working on. This is the beginning of the journey so stay tuned for more as we will continue enhance the value of putting these two technologies together.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to our sales team who has been trained on the integration. Good luck on your ventures and let us know how you are using the integration.
