MapR Technologies Inc., known as one of the top commercial vendors distributing Big Data software based on Apache Hadoop technology, today added JSON support to its MapR-DB NoSQL database, claiming the "industry's first in-Hadoop document database."
By adding JSON support to its MapR-DB NoSQL database, MapR said Big Data developers will be able to more quickly build continuous analytics solutions working with real-time data.
"Developers benefit from the advantages of a document database combined with the scale, reliability and integrated analytics of enterprise-grade Hadoop and Spark," the company said in a statement today. "These capabilities will enhance an organization's ability to improve a range of use cases -- from personalizing and delivering the best online shopping experience, to reducing risk and preventing fraud in real-time, to improving manufacturing efficiencies and lowering costs."
MapR is providing a preview package of MapR-DB with JSON support for developers to download now, with general availability scheduled for next quarter.
