MapR Technologies Launches Industry’s First Apache Hadoop Application Gallery

MapR Technologies, Inc., provider of the top-ranked distribution for Apache Hadoop, today launched at Hadoop Summit the industry’s first Hadoop application gallery. Launching with solutions from a wide range of Hadoop ecosystem partners, the MapR App Gallery is designed to help customers derive greater business value from big data as they scale-out their enterprise data architectures.

Aimed at end-user developers, administrators, and analysts who want to develop more sophisticated big data capabilities to enhance their business operations and decision-making, the MapR App Gallery offers the benefit of ready-made big data utilities and applications.

“Our customers typically run many different applications on a MapR cluster and the App Gallery makes it much easier and faster to achieve success,” said Jack Norris, chief marketing officer, MapR Technologies. “There is already a broad range of applications available, and we anticipate the number of applications will grow – particularly those leveraging unique capabilities that enable customers to better optimize revenue, control costs and mitigate risk.”

The App Gallery includes administrator-oriented apps for provisioning, management, and security; developer-oriented applications, query engines and frameworks; and analyst-focused applications for business intelligence and machine learning. Partners and solutions represented in the MapR App Gallery today include:

  • Database: Hadapt, HP Vertica, Rainstor, and Splice Machine
  • Analytics and Data Integration: Alpine Data Labs, Appfluent, Data Tactics, Datameer, DataTorrent, Informatica, Information Builders, Jaspersoft, Pentaho, Platfora, Revelytics, Revolution Analytics, Syncsort, Tableau, and Talend
  • Search: Elasticsearch and LucidWorks
  • Machine Learning: 0xdata, Skytree, and Zementis
  • Management and security: Dataguise, Splunk, StackIQ, and Voltage

The MapR Distribution is the most open distribution for Hadoop with industry-standard APIs to make it plug-and-play without special-purpose connectors or porting. Developers are encouraged to participate by leveraging one or more of the following open interfaces in their applications:

  • Storage access via HDFS API and NFS
  • Job execution via YARN, Tez, MapReduce, and Spark
  • Ecosystem interfaces including HBase, HiveQL, PigLatin
  • SQL via Drill, Hive, Stinger/Tez
  • Administration interfaces including REST

App Gallery contributors verify that their applications interoperate with the MapR Distribution with documentation and support information provided for each application. Developers can submit new applications directly to the App Gallery at www.mapr.com/appgallery/submit-app.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos.

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world.

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp.
