SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 20, 2013) - Alpine Data Labs, the leader in data science for big data and Hadoop, today announced it is extending its support for Hadoop by adding MapR Technologies, Inc., the Hadoop technology leader, to its growing roster of supported platforms. Alpine 2.8.2 -- the latest version of the company's flagship product that enables enterprises to rapidly derive business value from their big data by applying modern data science techniques -- now includes support for MapR 2.1.2 and 3.0.0.
Alpine 2.8.2 provides complete Data Science capabilities for MapR, including data discovery, transformation, modeling, scoring, collaboration and more. MapR is a proven, enterprise-grade Hadoop platform that supports a broad set of mission-critical and real-time production uses, and brings unprecedented dependability, ease-of-use and world-record speed to Hadoop, NoSQL, and database and streaming applications in one unified big data platform.
With today's announcement, Alpine extends the list of big data platforms it supports from a single installation. It is the only data science technology company that natively handles multiple platforms simultaneously, including Apache, Cloudera, Hadoop, Oracle, Pivotal Greenplum Database, Pivotal HD, as well as MPP (massively parallel processing) databases, and now MapR. This allows businesses to easily and quickly leverage all their data across the entire organization, drastically shrinking the model-to-score process and providing actionable results faster.
"Alpine's support for MapR provides beneficial opportunities all round," said Alpine President and CEO Joe Otto. "It unleashes the possibility for Alpine to target MapR's rapidly growing customer base, while in turn extending MapR's ecosystem into the field of advanced analytics on Hadoop. At the same time, it enables MapR customers to unlock new value and insights from their Hadoop investment."
"The powerful possibilities unlocked by Alpine's support for MapR will provide customers more power to extract value from their data," said Bill Bonin, vice president of business development, MapR Technologies. "We're excited about the expanding ecosystem and the combination of our enterprise grade platform with Alpine Data Lab's solution."
Alpine 2.8.2 includes several major new features, including Naïve Bayes and Support Vector Machine on Hadoop, support for sparse datasets and Champion/Challenger model deployment. Alpine is already up and running in the MapR installed customer base, and Alpine 2.8.2 with support for MapR is generally available immediately.
