Hadoop is a key component of the next-generation data architecture...MapR is a production-ready distribution for Apache Hadoop.

On March 20, 2014, co-hosts Lee Kantor and Stone Payton of BusinessRadioX®'s Atlanta Technology Leaders sat down with Brad Anderson from MapR Technologies to discuss the latest in big data.

Anderson is a Solutions Architect for MapR Technologies, the top-ranked distribution for Apache Hadoop. MapR does this with a proven, enterprise-grade platform that supports a broad set of mission-critical and real-time production uses.

According to Anderson, "Hadoop is a key component of the next-generation data architecture, providing a massively scalable distributed storage and processing platform. MapR is a production-ready distribution for Apache Hadoop." MapR brings unprecedented dependability, ease-of-use and world-record speed to Hadoop, NoSQL, database and streaming applications in one unified big data platform.

Anderson has been wrangling data for 20 years, first with data warehouses, and more recently building and using non-relational data systems in the big data space. Previously, he worked on a large-scale video-on-demand platform in Erlang, helped Cloudant build its hosted NoSQL offering based on CouchDB (IBM just acquired Cloudant), and organized the NoSQL East 2009 conference in Atlanta.
