Teradata, a big data analytics and marketing applications company and MapR Technologies, a provider of Apache Hadoop, today announced an expanded partnership that covers technology integration, road map alignment, and a unified go-to-market offering.
The two companies are optimising integration of the MapR Distribution within the Teradata Unified Data Architecture, providing customers more choices when combining Teradata’s data warehousing with Hadoop, discovery platforms and NoSQL options to drive analytic innovation.
The agreement also provides for Teradata to resell MapR software, professional services, and customer support and serve as the single point of contact for customers that use both Teradata and MapR solutions. Orchestration capabilities such as Teradata QueryGrid and Teradata Loom will be directly integrated with MapR software.
QueryGrid is the seamless data fabric that both optimises and simplifies processing across Teradata Databases, Hadoop distributions, the Teradata Aster Discovery Platform, NoSQL databases, and other technologies.
Teradata’s partnership with MapR covers key areas such single-vendor accountability for support of the full ecosystem, go-to-market acceleration and unified support along with MapR education and training services from Teradata.
