MapR and Microsoft enable enterprise grade big data applications in the Azure cloud

Simplifying the on-ramp to the cloud, Microsoft and MapR deliver enterprise-grade big data on-demand in the public cloud. Customers will be able to use the full breadth of the MapR Converged Data Platform with the cost advantages of Azure’s on-demand cloud services. MapR is architected to provide a reliable, enterprise-grade big data platform for intelligent applications.

MapR Converged Data Platform & Azure

The integration between Microsoft and MapR allows customers to:

  • Deploy MapR directly from the Microsoft Azure Marketplace
  • Transfer data between MapR and any of the Microsoft SQL Server services within Azure
  • Extend the reach of Microsoft Power BI via SQL to data sources in the MapR cluster. Apache Drill which is part of the MapR Converged Data Platform, uniquely provides the first schema-free SQL engine to instantly analyze semi-structured data without prior data transformation or schema definition
  • Run the MapR Database NoSQL database for real-time operational workloads (optionally synchronized across all Azure regions)

MapR and Microsoft have also collaborated to build a reference architecture for customers to deploy MapR on the Azure cloud. You can download the document below:
