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.
Data Management within MapR is intuitive and familiar as MapR provides standard Volume-based model. Administrators can create separate Volumes for different users and allow multiple users to share the cluster simultaneously in an isolated fashion. Data placement control options and label based scheduling allow administrators to customize the cluster for different user and hardware needs.
MapR integrates security into Hadoop with Kerberos and Native Authentication
