Overview

Teradata Aster provides an analytic platform for processing diverse analytics with massive scalability and performance. To help developers leverage SQL-MapReduce® and make it simple to create powerful analytics.

The SQL-MapReduce framework combines the familiarity of SQL with the power of MapReduce parallel processing - analysts can create powerful big data analytic applications without learning specialized new skills and without the complexity of traditional programming alternatives. SQL-MapReduce allows for greater depth of analytic insight and faster time to value from big data, helping organizations harness the value of their data.

MapReduce is a valuable new approach to massive-scale processing that simplifies data processing across massive data sets. As people rapidly increase their online activity and digital footprint, organizations are finding it vital to quickly analyze the huge amounts of data available to them.

SQL-MapReduce makes it easy to leverage the power of MapReduce with the ease and familiarity of SQL. Analytic software code written in Java, C, C#, Python, C++, R, and other languages can be MapReduce-enabled and pushed into the Teradata Aster Discovery Platform where it is called using standard SQL.
