MarkLogic announced it has joined the Hortonworks Technology Partner Program. Hortonworks promotes the development and support of Apache Hadoop. The companies say the partnership will help businesses and public sector agencies build sophisticated Big Data applications. They further claim that by leveraging MarkLogic and Hortonworks, organizations will be able to combine the power of the MapReduce programming model and software framework with MarkLogic’s real-time, interactive analysis and indexing on a single, unified platform.
Hortonworks and MarkLogic say the partnership will enable organizations to better leverage their Apache Hadoop stack to build interactive, operational applications on all of their data without having to sacrifice ease of use, development agility, or enterprise reliability. MarkLogic will certify its Connector for Hadoop against the Hortonworks Data Platform, a platform said to make Apache Hadoop more robust and easier to install, manage, and use, and provides an open and stable foundation for enterprises to build and deploy Big Data solutions.
The two companies will also develop reference architectures for MarkLogic-Hadoop solutions and further align their product roadmaps. With MarkLogic and Hortonworks, the companies claim, organizations will have a fully supported Big Data application platform that enables real-time data access and full-text search together with batch processing and massive archival storage.
