MapR offers AWS Test Drives

AWS Test Drive

MapR Technologies’ partners have integrated their technology with the MapR data platform and made them freely available for education, demonstration, and evaluation purposes via Amazon Web Services (AWS) Test Drive for Big Data.

AWS Test Drives for Big Data provide private IT sandbox environments containing preconfigured server-based solutions, allowing customers to launch and learn about third-party big data IT solutions an under an hour. Customers can also use a step-by-step lab manual and video to assist in getting up and running.

AWS Test Drives for Dataguise DgSecure, HPE Vertical, Apache Drill and TIBCO Spitfire are available now.

“AWS provides a highly scalable platform where customers can easily spin up MapR clusters,” said Matt Lescohier, senior director of business development, MapR Technologies. “MapR is the only Hadoop distribution on the AWS Cloud that is available as an option on Amazon Elastic MapReduce (EMR), AWS Marketplace, and now via AWS Test Drive. These AWS Test Drive offerings add value for our ecosystem partners by showcasing the performance, reliability, and scale our combined solutions provide to customers.”

AWS Test Drives are developed by APN Consulting and Technology partners and are provided free of charge for education, demonstration, and evaluation purposes. Each AWS Test Drive includes enough free AWS server time to launch and explore these live solution stacks.
