MapR eliminates the complexity of setting up and managing Hadoop. MapR provides alerts, alarms and insights through an advanced graphical interface. MapR’s Heatmap™ provides a clear view of cluster health and performance, and MapR Volumes simplify data security, retention, placement, and quota management.
MapR has also developed Direct Access NFS™. This allows users to mount the entire Hadoop cluster as an NFS volume. This radically simplifies how an application can write to, and read from, a Hadoop cluster. This enables many related operations and applications from drag-and-drop access to streaming updates and realtime analytics.
