Informatica and MapR are going to support MapR's distribution of Hadoop on the Informatica Platform together.
Informatica's free HParser Community Edition will be available for download as part of the MapR distribution from the MapR web site. That MapR distribution is also available through the EMC Greenplum MR Edition and Cisco UCS.
Informatica says, "For the first time, MapR and Informatica are providing a solution that handles the volume, variety and velocity of Big Data, combining the power of data integration, data replication, messaging with the simplicity of no-code design in Informatica."
The companies claim their combination will push the limits of high-performance networks and make moving terabytes-an-hour of high-volume transaction, interaction and real-time streaming data into Hadoop a reality.
Informatica said there would be bi-directional data integration with Informatica PowerCenter and PowerExchange; snapshot replication using Informatica FastClone; data streaming using Informatica Ultra Messaging and parallel parsing and transformation on MapR using Informatica HParser.
HParser gives Hadoop developers out-of-the-box Hadoop parsing capabilities to address various data sources including logs, call data records, industry standards, documents and binary or hierarchical data. Native support for MapR is supposed to let HParser users take advantage of the dependability, speed and ease of use of MapR's platform.
MapR claims the joint effort has strong customer response.
