MongoDB Connector for Hadoop Now Certified with Top 3 Hadoop Vendors
We’re excited to announce that our MongoDB Connector for Hadoop has just been certified on MapR’s latest distribution, 4.0.1 . The connector, which allows customers to use MongoDB as an input source and/or output destination for Hadoop deployments, is now certified on distributions from all of the leading vendors in the space, including MapR , Hortonworks , and Cloudera . As an operational database for use cases such as Single View , Internet of Things , Real-Time Analytics , and more , MongoDB is the perfect technology complement to Hadoop. With the connector, live data from MongoDB can be brought into Hadoop, enriched through analytics (often with data from other sources), and then passed back into MongoDB to better serve user-facing applications.
