MapR, Elasticsearch Partner on Open Source Big Data Search

MapR is hoping that bringing feature-rich open source searching to its Big Data platform via integration with Elasticsearch will help draw users by making Big Data analytics and business intelligence faster and more comprehensive.

Search features are certainly not new to Hadoop, but Elasticsearch aims to innovate by supporting scalable searches in real time across different types of data. It helps “Hadoop users enhance their workflows with a full-blown search engine that scales no matter the amount of data,” according to Elasticsearch creator, founder, and CTO, Shay Banon.
