SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 28, 2016) - Hadoop Summit -- Zoomdata, developers of the world's fastest visual analytics platform for big data, announced today it is certified with the MapR Converged Data Platform, the industry's only data platform that integrates the power of Apache Hadoop and Apache Spark with global event streaming, real-time database capabilities, and enterprise storage. MapR and Zoomdata are also collaborating on enhanced product integration and support.

Through this collaboration, Zoomdata has developed a Smart Connector that natively supports Apache Drill, ensuring that customers can build powerful, insightful applications using Zoomdata and fully leverage the power of the MapR Converged Data Platform. End users now can gain direct access to and analyze a variety of data types without the need for any schema creation or data transformation.

Zoomdata is an open platform that provides visual analytics solutions for big data. Natively architected for both cloud and on-premise deployments, its microservices architecture enables visual analysis of big datasets in seconds. Zoomdata's patented Data Sharpening™ technology delivers the industry's fastest visual analytics for real-time streaming and historical data. Zoomdata's streaming architecture makes this possible by using Apache Spark as a complementary real-time high-performance engine. Zoomdata Fusion enables users to perform analytics across disparate data sources in a single view -- without the need to move or transform data.

Drill provides the flexibility to immediately query complex data in native formats, while offering the agility to derive timely insights from big data with minimal IT involvement. Because SQL queries can run directly on various file formats, live data can be explored as it is ingested versus spending weeks preparing and managing schemas. Additionally, Drill supports ANSI SQL so users can easily leverage their SQL skills and existing investments in business intelligence (BI) tools.

"MapR is very popular in enterprises scaling out to very large deployments, and Zoomdata can support even the largest data sets," said Nick Halsey, CMO, Zoomdata. "Now our customers will have complete flexibility when determining the best tools for their needs."

"Apache Drill uniquely delivers self-service SQL analytics without requiring pre-defined schema definitions, dramatically reducing the time for business analysts to explore and understand data," said Sheryl Sage, director of Alliances at MapR. "With Zoomdata completing certification for the MapR Converged Data Platform, our combined technologies provide joint customers with a deployment-ready solution for real-time big data applications."

The MapR Converged Data Platform ensures production success with an architecture designed specifically for business-critical applications, seamless data access and integration, and the ability to run in real-time both operational and analytical processing and applications reliably on one platform.
