MapR is a complete distribution that includes Apache HBase™, Pig, Hive, Mahout, Cascading, Sqoop, Flume and more. MapR’s distribution is 100% API compatible with Apache Hadoop™ (MapReduce, HDFS and HBase™). MapR Technologies has significantly advanced Hadoop by making it easy, dependable, and fast.
|Instant intuitive insight from MapR Heatmap™
MapR’s unique control system provides complete access and power tools to help you understand and operate your Hadoop cluster with ease. Intuitive views into the most critical issues are automatically provided along with tools to allow provisioning a single node or thousands. Of course we also provide CLI access.
Revolutionary Direct Access NFS™ for realtime dataflows
MapR enables you to simply mount the cluster as an NFS volume. That means Hadoop finally has a read-write filesystem making it easier, and faster to get big data in and results out. That’s why we call it Direct Access NFS™. It also enables incremental data loads making it possible to run jobs on streaming data.
Provision jobs, users & groups and do capacity planning
MapR is the first to implement volumes. This concept coupled with the ability to provision around users and groups simplifies management. We even integrated NIS and LDAP. Key to provisioning is the ability to set and track quotas and usage. This helps you do capacity planning for the future while automated advisory alerts draw your attention to potential problem areas.
Share the Hadoop cluster safely with multiple jobs
We started by protecting the core system by isolating it from user jobs to ensure that a runaway job can’t bring down your entire cluster. Safely sharing the cluster also means higher utilization. Setting quotas for users and then tracking capacity usage is made easy whether you are managing one node or thousands. Automated alerts on alarms provides a built-in assistant for you to rely on as you manage the Hadoop environment.
MapR’s innovative architecture
MapR’s architecture was designed by anticipating the growth of big data over the next decade. MapR makes possible unlimited number of files, provides vastly greater headroom for growth, and gets out of your way with a minimal footprint design so your jobs get done faster.
Flexible Security with Kerberos and Native Authentication
MapR provides easy and transparent integration with Kerberos allowing businesses to leverage their existing security infrastructure. MapR also supports a non-Kerberos option by providing a native authentication solution that initiates and maintains key-based secure communication across the cluster.
Three Great Editions
|MapR Technologies offers three editions of its groundbreaking, unified Big Data platform for Hadoop.|
|The M3 Edition is free and available for unlimited production use. Support is provided on a community basis and through MapR's Forums.|
|The M5 Edition is an enterprise-grade platform for Hadoop which includes features such as Mirroring, Snapshots, NFS HA, data placement control, and many more. The M5 Edition also offers full support, on-demand patches and online incident submission.|
|The M7 Edition is an enterprise-grade platform for NoSQL and Hadoop, providing unique ease of use, dependability and performance advantages. M7 has removed the trade-offs organizations face when looking to deploy a NoSQL solution. M7 not only delivers enterprise-grade features such as Instant Recovery, Snapshots and Mirroring but also provides scale, strong consistency, reliability and continuous low latency.|
