• HPE advances intelligent data platform with MapR acquisition

        • Hewlett Packard Enterprise has acquired the business assets of MapR, a data platform for artificial intelligence and analytics applications, powered by scale-out, multi-cloud and multi-protocol file system technology. 

          The transaction includes MapR’s technology, intellectual property, and domain expertise in artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) and analytics data management. HPE welcomes MapR customers and partners and plans to support existing deployments along with ongoing renewals.

          Antonio Neri, President, and CEO of Hewlett Packard Enterprise said, “the explosion of data is creating a new era of intelligence where the winners will be the ones who harness the power of data, wherever it lives. MapR’s file system technology enables HPE to offer a complete portfolio of products to drive artificial intelligence and analytics applications and strengthens our ability to help customers manage their data assets end to end, from edge to cloud.”

          This asset acquisition accelerates HPE’s Intelligent Data Platform capabilities and helps customers optimise workload solutions for mission-critical big-data workflows – whether they are cloud-native or on-premises.

          Phil Davis, President, Hybrid IT, Hewlett Packard Enterprise added, “at HPE, we are working to simplify our customers’ and partners’ adoption of artificial intelligence and machine learning. MapR’s enterprise-grade file system and cloud-native storage services complement HPE’s BlueData container platform strategy and will allow us to provide a unique value proposition for customers. We are pleased to welcome MapR’s world-class team to the HPE family.”

          MapR has an ecosystem of partners that spans resellers, independent software vendors and system integrators in the AI/ML and analytics market. HPE will add these partners, as appropriate, and continue to offer choice through a broad ecosystem that includes many other data-centric ISVs.
