MapR Adds JSON Support to NoSQL Database for Big Data Analytics
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.
