How Platfora Works

Platfora allows business analysts to interactively analyze the mass of data that is stored in their MapR environment. Platfora users first select a subset of their data in Hadoop to be brought into a Lens. A Lens is an in-memory accelerated data mart in Platfora that is optimized for fast querying and analysis. Once the data is in a Lens, it can be interactively queried using Platfora’s drag and drop visualization interface, called Vizboards.

Lens data is stored and queried on a separate Platfora cluster, so it does not interfere with any of the processes on Hadoop. Vizboards is built 100% on HTML5 and can render millions of points in a standard web browser – no desktop client required
