Drawn to Scale Delivers Real-Time SQL for Applications on Hadoop With MapR Partnership

Distributing MapR M3 Inside of Spire Enables Hadoop for Interactive Web and Mobile Application Workloads

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 24, 2012) - Drawn to Scale, creator of Spire, the real time database for Hadoop, today announced a partnership with MapR Technologies, Inc., the provider of the open, enterprise-grade distribution for Apache Hadoop. Drawn to Scale will be re-distributing MapR's M3 Edition as part of an integrated package inside of Spire. 

Enterprises and startups try to leverage high volume Big Data to create a richer user experience in the world of web and mobile, but lack SQL and the performance users expect. This requires a highly available distributed system with a secondary distributed index for instant data access. Then add web friendly interfaces to work with a wide range of front end applications. Spire with M3 inside provides a single deployable Big Data database that allows developers to work with Hadoop as if it were a traditional RDBMS.

"MapR provides the fastest, most reliable Hadoop for our customers," said Bradford Stephens, CEO, Drawn to Scale. "We are thrilled to work with MapR to deliver M3 as part of Spire as the first real-time database for Hadoop."

"Real-time SQL on Hadoop is a big gap in the market that is addressed by Spire," said Jack Norris, VP of marketing, MapR Technologies. "Spire is a complementary solution to our products and it made sense to work with Drawn to Scale to make it easier for customers to deploy M3, pre-integrated with Spire, for real-time SQL-based workloads."

Drawn to Scale is currently shipping Spire to select customers. Contact Drawn to Scale at
