Choosing a Hadoop Distribution

MapR needed to educate its CIO buyers about the Hadoop distribution landscape. We were delighted to roll up our sleeves to do the complex research to unpack this complex story. MapR wanted to convey why Hadoop alone is not a finished product, and why Open Source does not necessarily mean lower cost.

This educational white paper reveals common pitfalls and misconceptions about Hadoop adoption, and makes a compelling case for adopting an enterprise-ready Hadoop distribution like MapR.

MapR’s buyers have used the paper to understand what distribution will work for them. We consider it a success when our client’s buyers find value in the content we create.
