In a recent press release, MapR announced that several of its partners, including Syntelli Solutions, have integrated big data technologies with the MapR platform and provided free Test Drives for individuals to explore and learn about these technologies in action via Amazon Web Services.
The press release explains that AWS Test Drives for Dataguise DgSecure, HPE Vertica, Apache Drill, and TIBCO Spotfire® are available now for testing and exploration. Essentially, these Big Data AWS Test Drives allow for private sandbox environments that are fully pre-built and pre-configured for the end user. By using step-by-step instructions, users can launch, login and explore the most popular big data solutions in under one hour. Because these environments are hosted on the cloud, no installation is required, making it easy to start discovering business insights.
“AWS provides a highly scalable platform where customers can easily spin up MapR clusters,” said Matt Lescohier, senior director of business development, MapR Technologies. “MapR is the only Hadoop distribution on the AWS Cloud that is available as an option on Amazon Elastic MapReduce (EMR), AWS Marketplace, and now via AWS Test Drive. These AWS Test Drive offerings add value for our ecosystem partners by showcasing the performance, reliability, and scale our combined solutions provide to customers.”
Syntelli, a proud partner of MapR and Spotfire, built the “AWS Test Drive with Apache Drill and Spotfire” to help users immediately see how to extract value from big data technologies.
“We are proud to be a member of the AWS Partner Network (APN) and to have the opportunity to present MapR and Spotfire Test Drive on AWS,” said Rishi Bhatnagar, CEO, Syntelli Solutions. “With the help of our partners, Syntelli Solutions enables customers to get the right results from their big data at the speed of light.
