According to a recent article out of the company, “MapR Technologies, Inc., provider of the top-ranked distribution for Apache™ Hadoop®, today announced that it is one of the first to receive Big Data Competency status from Amazon Web Services (AWS). Now part of the new AWS Partner Network (APN) Competency Program, AWS has named MapR as a Big Data Competency Partner based on customer success, technical proficiency and software validation. ‘As the first Hadoop distribution company in the APN Competency Program, we’re excited to be recognized for helping customers successfully use Hadoop in production environments at any scale,’ said Jon Posnik, vice president of business development at MapR Technologies. ‘This validation from AWS reaffirms the value that the MapR distribution provides in the cloud by delivering unparalleled flexibility, scalability and cost-effectiveness’.”

The article continues, “The MapR Distribution for Hadoop is an enterprise-grade platform built from the ground up to bring unprecedented dependability, ease-of-use and performance levels to Hadoop, NoSQL, database and streaming applications. MapR is available on Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR) as a simple drop-down selection in the AWS Management Console. MapR is fully supported on multiple AWS instance types, including the latest high-performance SSD-backed high I/O instances. The combination of MapR and Amazon EMR provides a proven solution for users who want to effectively and rapidly leverage Hadoop on the AWS Cloud.”
