MapR Technologies Named a 2012 Emerging Vendor by CRN and UBM Channel

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 27, 2012) - MapR Technologies, Inc., the provider of the open, enterprise-grade distribution for Apache Hadoop, today announced it has been selected by UBM Channel and CRN as a 2012 Emerging Technology Vendor. The annual list features the most innovative vendors who not only deliver technology that is easy to use, but can generate the high margins solution providers require. The vendors that make up the CRN Emerging Technology Vendor list were founded in 2006 or later, have revenue under $1 billion and have an active U.S. channel strategy.

Among these Emerging Vendors are companies that have already established themselves in their market segment and others that are already making an impact despite a recent launch. Each organization on the list represents a new partnership and go-to-market opportunity for solution providers looking to identify new vendor partners.

MapR's advanced distribution for Apache Hadoop delivers on the promise of Hadoop, making the management and analysis of Big Data a practical reality for more organizations. MapR's advanced capabilities, such as streaming analytics and mission-critical data protection, expand the breadth and depth of use cases across industries.

"Emerging doesn't mean what it used to," said Kelley Damore, VP, editorial director, UBM Channel. "And this collection of up-and-comers and new-to-the-game vendors is on an upward trajectory that a host of young companies that preceded them could barely imagine. With new innovations like cloud computing and virtualization speeding up the pace of innovation, and technology mainstays like storage and networking branching off into new directions, this list encapsulates a tectonic technology shift where the recently founded are starting to rule the roost and become household names much more quickly than in the past. We congratulate each vendor on the list and congratulate them for placing an emphasis on innovation and ease of use, features that are the hallmark of any successful channel offering."

Final selection to the Emerging Technology Vendor list was made by the CRN editorial team after a review of submitted information. To view a sample of the list and read the editorial accompaniment visit www.CRN.com.
