      2 weeks would mean a week from today? Unlikely.

    Looking at the past funding by google and Qualcomm, I thought mapr wouldn't go down like this. The company already lost credibility with clients due to this failed funding. Survival chances are slim. Hope their employees have already started exploring other options.

      Can you please expand on the customer saying MapR's lost credibility? Curious to know if there was any measurable impact

      As a customer I would be worried if my vendors is running out of cash. I would be worried about continuity of ops and support. I would explore other options. As a prospective customer I will totally avoid cash stripped vendor. Such companies have recovered in the past when some biggy acquired them.
