MapReduce is a programming model that was popularized by Google in 2004 to process large unstructured data sets distributed across thousands of nodes. In-Database MapReduce enables enterprises to harness the power of MapReduce while managing their data in Aster nCluster, a massively-parallel (MPP) relational database for data warehousing and analytics. Aster nCluster was the first database system to offers enterprise-class MapReduce capabilities such as integration with BI and ETL tools, SQL support, backup and recovery, transactional data consistency, support for interactive as we all batch analysis, etc.
