Gurunavi Chooses MapR Distribution for Apache™ Hadoop® to Strengthen its Big Data Analysis
SAN JOSE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Nautilus Technologies, Inc., provider of enterprise middle-ware with
consulting and development for Hadoop environment, and MapR
Technologies, Inc., provider of the top-ranked distribution for
Apache Hadoop, today announced that Gurunavi Inc., a leading restaurant
search site in Japan, has chosen the MapR Distribution for Hadoop to
leverage its big data and search history to provide greater value-add
for its services. Nautilus will support deployment of Gurunavi's new big
data system, which is expected to take place in the summer of 2014.
Gurunavi faced an increasing amount of data, which pushed the limits of
its Hadoop-based analysis platform. The company considered system
expansion, but was concerned about the anticipated increase in operating
costs. Gurunavi therefore decided to upgrade its system architecture and
selected the MapR Distribution for Hadoop, an enterprise-grade Hadoop
platform with unprecedented dependability and world-record speed, to
extend the value of its big data environment.
Gurunavi selected MapR for several reasons, including:
Eliminates single point of failure (SPOF) in Hadoop NameNode -
Removing performance bottlenecks, MapR reduces the number of servers
required by one third and brings operational efficiencies and reduction
in total cost of ownership (TCO).
Manages random read and write operations on Hadoop - By
leveraging the industry standard NFS interface, MapR seamlessly
integrates existing systems with big data analysis infrastructure and
runs various file-based applications.
Provides multi-tenancy - MapR makes it possible to set respective
department policies to ensure smooth operation and management.
Preserves job execution - Due to redundancy of jobs across nodes,
MapR enables restarting of jobs from the point of failure.
Nautilus is an early adopter of Hadoop and has extensive exprience with
Hadoop infrastructure design, operation and management. Gurunavi
selected Nautilus for its many achievements and to take advantage of its
Asakusa Framework™, a development framework for Hadoop, to leverage
Hadoop for analytic and business operation purposes.
Nautilus and MapR will work together to help Gurunavi collect and
analyze big data, such as access logs and search logs, and plan to
provide higher value-added services and greater satisfaction to Gurunavi
users and member restaurants.
"Gurunavi is the largest restaurant search site in Japan that
successfully brings restaurants and consumers together," said Yoshiaki
Hirabayashi, sales director from MapR Technologies Japan. "The company
is revolutionizing how the food service industry operates with advanced
big data analytics and we're excited they have decided to work with MapR
and Nautilus to accomplish their business objectives."
