Alpine Data Labs Announces Support for MapR Technologies, Extends Support for 
Alpine 2.8.2 Provides Complete Data Science Capabilities for MapR;
Extends Supported Platforms and Machine Learning Capabilities 
SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/20/13 --  Alpine Data Labs, the
leader in data science for big data and Hadoop, today announced it is
extending its support for Hadoop by adding MapR Technologies, Inc.,
the Hadoop technology leader, to its growing roster of supported
platforms. Alpine 2.8.2 -- the latest version of the company's
flagship product that enables enterprises to rapidly derive business
value from their big data by applying modern data science techniques
-- now includes support for MapR 2.1.2 and 3.0.0. 
Alpine 2.8.2 provides complete Data Science capabilities for MapR,
including data discovery, transformation, modeling, scoring,
collaboration and more. MapR is a proven, enterprise-grade Hadoop
platform that supports a broad set of mission-critical and real-time
production uses, and brings unprecedented dependability, ease-of-use
and world-record speed to Hadoop, NoSQL, and database and streaming
applications in one unified big data platform.  
With today's announcement, Alpine extends the list of big data
platforms it supports from a single installation. It is the only data
science technology company that natively handles multiple platforms
simultaneously, including Apache, Cloudera, Hadoop, Oracle, Pivotal
Greenplum Database, Pivotal HD, as well as MPP (massively parallel
processing) databases, and now MapR. This allows businesses to easily
and quickly leverage all their data across the entire organization,
drastically shrinking the model-to-score process and providing
actionable results faster.  
"Alpine's support for MapR provides beneficial opportunities all
round," said Alpine President and CEO Joe Otto. "It unleashes the
possibility for Alpine to target MapR's rapidly growing customer
base, while in turn extending MapR's ecosystem into the field of

will provide customers more power to extract value from their data,"
said Bill Bonin, vice president of business development, MapR
Technologies. "We're excited about the expanding ecosystem and the
combination of our enterprise grade platform with Alpine Data Lab's
Alpine 2.8.2 includes several major new features, including Naive
Bayes and Support Vector Machine on Hadoop, support for sparse
datasets and Champion/Challenger model deployment. Alpine is already
up and running in the MapR installed customer base, and Alpine 2.8.2
with support for MapR is generally available immediately.
