Harnessing innovative technology to process enormous amounts of data in real time—Indispensible for enterprise systems of the future
In order to explain what MapR is and does, it is necessary to first mention Hadoop. Hadoop is an open-source software framework that allows storing and processing of very large data sets in a distributed environment. It was developed by an engineer working at Yahoo!, based on a research paper published by Google. The framework was quickly adopted by many companies providing online services. MapR in turn is a product that greatly improves Hadoop performance for business applications.
As Mr. Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, Country Manager for the Japan Office of MapR Technologies puts it, “Hadoop is open-source software which means that in principle it can be used by anyone. However, we have equipped it with innovative technology that makes it significantly faster while ensuring both operability and reliability on a very high plane.”
After studying in the U.S., Mr. Hirabayashi worked in operations at GE Capital and served as sales director for IT companies. Subsequent career steps include positions at the Norwegian search engine developer Fast Search & Transfer, Microsoft, and other foreign enterprises. Appointed Country Manager for the Japan Office of MapR Technologies in 2013.
