About Karmasphere Studio Professional Edition and Karmasphere Analyst

Until recently, Apache Hadoop and Hive software has only been available to advanced UNIX/Linux-based developers and analysts willing and able to set-up a Hadoop cluster and install Hive. Karmasphere removes this productivity roadblock and streamlines MapReduce programming and SQL prototyping. With Karmasphere, there is no initial requirement to set-up a Hadoop cluster – Karmasphere lets developers and data engineers analyze Hadoop data with a graphical desktop environment from Windows, Mac or UNIX/Linux instead of hard-to-use command-line tools. And, when developers and analysts are ready to deploy to a real Hadoop cluster, Karmasphere lets them migrate to any distribution of Hadoop including Cloudera CDH and Amazon Elastic MapReduce with one click. Karmasphere Studio Community Edition is available for free and can be downloaded at the Karmasphere website.   For more information, analysts and developers are invited to join the Karmasphere Community mailing list.
