Work with any flavor of Hadoop.

SQL on Hadoop continues to be the most popular way for organizations to run queries on data stored in HDFS. With a wide range of out-of-the-box connectors, MicroStrategy enables organizations to leverage their existing investments in big data technology and directly connect to Hadoop distributors like Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR, IBM BigInsights, and Pivotal. Organizations can leverage all SQL on Hadoop technologies, including Cloudera Impala, MapR Drill, Apache Spark, Pivotal HAWQ, and Facebook Presto to support interactive queries.

Adaptive data connectivity

Enterprise analytics platforms need to be able to keep up with the rapidly changing big data landscape and seamlessly adapt to new technologies and data storage paradigms. The MicroStrategy platform is highly flexible, so organizations can easily migrate to Hadoop or switch to cloud-based data storage without impacting end-users.

Connect to NoSQL databases

Organizations often use NoSQL databases to store semi-structured data that is well suited for real-time analysis, transactional analysis, and more. MicroStrategy provides direct connectivity to NoSQL databases like MongoDB and Cassandra.

Natively connect to HDFS

The MicroStrategy Hadoop Gateway makes it easy for organizations to natively tap into their Hadoop assets. For ad-hoc self-service scenarios, where organizations are looking to generate schema on read, our native Hadoop connector provides faster parallel data transfer from Hadoop.
