Launching with solutions from a wide range of Hadoop ecosystem partners, MapR said its newly launched 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," the company said in a statement.
“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 optimise 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. Featured apps include apps from HP, Alpine, DataTorrent and Splunk.
MapR claims its Apache Hadoop distribution claims to provide full data protection, no single points of failure, improved performance, and dramatic ease of use advantages. The company opened a Melbourne office earlier this year.
