Data warehouse vendor Teradata continues to expand its presence in the realm of Big Data through strategic acquisitions. In its latest move, Teradata has acquired data-archiving specialist RainStor for an undisclosed sum, marking its fourth acquisition this year.

2014. MapR partners with Teradata to reach enterprise customers

The last remaining independent Hadoop provider, MapR, and the prominent big data analytics provider, Teradata, have joined forces to collaborate on integrating their respective products and developing a unified go-to-market strategy. As part of this partnership, Teradata gains the ability to resell MapR software, professional services, and provide customer support. Essentially, Teradata will act as the primary interface for enterprises that utilize or aspire to use both technologies, serving as the representative for MapR. Previously, Teradata had established a close partnership with Hortonworks, but it now extends its collaboration and analytic market leadership to all three major Hadoop providers. Similarly, earlier this week, HP unveiled Vertica for SQL on Hadoop, enabling users to access and analyze data stored in any of the three primary Hadoop distributions—Hortonworks, MapR, and Cloudera.

2014. Teradata is launching its own Hadoop cloud service

Data warehouse provider Teradata has recently announced the launch of its Hadoop cloud service, along with a new and significant partnership with Cloudera. Over the past few years, Teradata has been engaged in a debate regarding the potential threat posed by the open-source Hadoop platform and its expanding capabilities to its multibillion-dollar business of selling proprietary and costly database software and appliances. Regardless of whether Teradata is genuinely concerned, the company is taking extensive measures to embrace Hadoop and incorporate it into its sales cycle. The partnership with Cloudera stands out as one of Teradata's major recent initiatives, partially loosening the existing tight collaboration between Teradata and Cloudera's competitor, Hortonworks.
