MapR M7 provides ease of use, dependability and performance advantages for NoSQL and Apache Hadoop™ applications. MapR M7 has removed the trade-offs organizations face when looking to deploy a NoSQL solution. M7 provides scale, strong consistency, reliability and continuous low latency.
MapR M7 is architected from the ground up to deliver reliability and performance without requiring compactions or background consistency checks to work smoothly. M7 delivers performance of over one million operations/sec with a ten-node cluster that can scale linearly. M7 provides dramatic scalability advantages with support for up to one trillion tables across thousands of nodes. M7 also provides instant recovery from failures, ensuring 99.999% availability for Apache HBase™ and Hadoop applications.
With M7, there are no RegionServers, additional processes, or any redundant layer between the application and the data residing in the cluster. M7’s zero-administration approach includes automatic region splits and self-tuning with no downtime required for any operation including schema changes.
MapR M7 delivers dramatically better HBase application performance compared to HBase applications running on other distributions. M7’s throughput advantage ranges from 4-10x across various read-write workloads while eliminating latency spikes. More importantly, M7 read performance (as seen in blue in the graph below) is consistent at all times without any of the spikes seen with HBase applications (in orange below).
Making Apache HBase Applications Enterprise Grade
No Downtime with Instant Recovery
M7 delivers database high availability. Instead of requiring thirty minutes or more of downtime to reassign the region when a node goes down that HBase running on other Hadoop distributions requires, M7 enables Instant Recovery from data replicated in the cluster.
Zero NoSQL Administration
M7’s simplified architecture eliminates manual operations related to HBase administration with automated operations including region splits and self-tuning.
Continuous Low Latency
MapR M7 provides consistent low latency by avoiding garbage collections or compactions that affect performance. Low disk I/O coupled with smaller disk footprint makes database operations on disk fast and predictable.
Full Data Protection
M7 delivers full data protection for NoSQL applications, including Apache HBase applications. Snapshots enable point-in-time recovery of tables to protect against user or application errors. M7 expands Snapshots to include all data - both files and tables. With M7, tables can be read directly from Snapshots and recovered directly without the downtime required to restore HBase tables in other distributions.
Business Continuity with Mirroring
Mirroring allows users to automatically replicate differential data in real-time across clusters. This could be employed to create disaster recovery solutions for databases or leveraged to provide read-only access to data from multiple locations. Because M7 does not require RegionServers to be reconstructed, databases can be brought up instantly on the mirrored site if the active site goes down.
Share the Cluster Safely with Multiple Jobs
MapR protects the core system by isolating it from user jobs so runaway jobs can't bring down your entire cluster. Features such as ExpressLane, data placement and job placement control mean you can run multiple jobs with different requirements without conflict.
Revolutionary Direct Access NFSTM for Realtime Dataflows
MapR enables you to simply mount the cluster as an NFS volume giving Hadoop a full read/write storage system to support multiple readers and writers as well as full random read and write. Our patent pending NFS access allows applications to load data directly into Hadoop and realtime access to Hadoop results.
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.|
