Kognitio on Amazon EMR

Kognitio on Amazon EMR

Kognitio now brings fully functional, ultra-high speed, high concurrency SQL to Amazon EMR (Elastic Map Reduce).

The release is immediately available and can be downloaded from Kognitio on Hadoop

Business users can now connect to data sets that have been created in EMR with SQL generating business tools, such as Tableau, MicroStrategy and Qlik, without having to move the data.

Kognitio is very simple and easy to install on EMR. Both Kognitio and EMR work out of the box with no tuning, making the combination of Kognitio and EMR the easiest and quickest SQL accessible Hadoop implementation available today. A fully functional 20node cluster ready to ingest data can be spun-up in 15mins.

Kognitio’s new EMR support makes it very easy for organisations to try and explore the power of Kognitio-on-hadoop. For example, using Amazon spot pricing it is possible to build EMR clusters with 5TB of memory and 640 CPU Cores for as little as $15 an hour.

“Business analytics continue to run on SQL or BI tools connected to data via SQL,” said Dr. Phil Shelley, Director at Datametica, one of the largest pure-play Big Data solution providers. “Kognitio on Hadoop is designed to deliver high-speed native SQL support for data on AWS EMR. This is critically important as we and many others migrate legacy on-premise data warehouses to AWS.”
