What is Aster Data Map Reduce?

SQL-MapReduceĀ is a framework created by Teradata Aster to allow developers to write powerful and highly expressive SQL-MapReduce functions in languages such as Java, C#, Python, C++, and R and push them into the discovery platform for high performance analytics. Analysts can then invoke SQL-MapReduce functions using standard SQL or R through Aster Database, the first discovery platform that allows applications to be fully embedded within the database engine to enable ultra-fast, deep analysis of massive data sets.

Has good base product functionality of data storage and analytics but there should be an option to use it on the cloud

What is our primary use case?

Aster Teradata is mostly being used for doing mapping and I use it for analytics. Usually, there is a support vendor who will use Teradata to do the database analytics. But sometimes with Teradata, the DB administrators use it to get access to the libraries or the data processes. I mostly recommend Teradata for data storage because it is easy to deploy and implement.

Pros and Cons

  • "The ease of deployment is useful so clients are up and running quickly in comparison to other products."
  • "There are some ways that the handling of unstructured data could be improved."

What other advice do I have?

Teradata has all the best features currently, but I think right now the market is really flooding with multiple options. Many customers have a need for rapid on-premise deployment. I think in that case I would recommend Teradata. But for smaller or medium-sized companies, there are probably other options out there that they might use instead which will fit better for their budget. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate Aster Data MapReduce (Teradata) overall as maybe six or seven probably. Seven-out-of-ten. To improve that rating, I think we seeā€¦

Good performance and it is easy to use data from multiple sources

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution as a simple repository for all of the data that comes from multiple sources related to our organization. It has financial data, transactional data, customer complaint data, as well as customer feedback data. All of these are collected from different systems and they are consolidated for viewing within our management dashboards or for use in other analytics.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the ease of uploading data from multiple sources."
  • "It is hard for some of our users to set up rules for cleansing and transforming data, so this is something that could be improved."

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is considering this solution would be to opt for the cloud version, rather than deploy on-premises. It is a better option. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
