MapR Technologies, Inc., provider of the industry’s only Converged Data Platform, today announced availability of a new MapR Connector for Teradata, a leading analytics solutions company . This provides high speed, parallel connections from Teradata to the MapR Converged Data Platform, improving bulk data transfers, and enabling scalable agile analytics across the ecosystem. The new connector is also certified for use in an Informatica Big Data Management environment for simpler and faster data integrations between MapR and Teradata.

"Teradata and MapR share clients who are realizing significant business outcomes enabled by our joint technologies,” said Chad Meley, vice president, marketing, Teradata. “This latest innovation is in response to their need to scale data movement across the ecosystem fabric to support analytics against growing data volumes resulting from mobile, web, and the IoT."

The new MapR Connector, based on the Teradata Connector for Hadoop (TDCH), enables higher speed data transfers between MapR and Teradata, optimizing ecosystem environments and providing robust and performant access to analytics data due to parallelization across cluster nodes. The new MapR Connector leverages the popular open source data integration tool Apache Sqoop and is certified for use in Informatica Big Data Management as part of an organization-wide data integration technology.
