MapR is the world’s only Apache Hadoop distribution to provide automatic and in-place snapshots.
MapR Snapshots provide protection from user and application errors with flexible schedules to accommodate a range of recovery point objectives. MapR Snapshots can be scheduled or performed on demand. Recovering from a snapshot is as easy as dragging and dropping the directory or files to the current directory.
MapR Snapshots offer high performance and space efficiency. No data is copied in order to create a snapshot. As a result, a snapshot of a petabyte volume can be performed in seconds. A snapshot operation does not have any impact on write performance. MapR uses redirect-on-write operations, meaning that each write in the system goes to a new block on disk.
