One Platform for Big Data Applications
With MapR, data does not need to be moved to specialized silos for processing; data can be processed in place. In fact, we have applied the concept of "Polyglot Persistence" to the MapR platform, with the ability to leverage multiple data types and formats directly, depending on your use case. MapR Distribution’s unified architecture enables direct processing of files and tables. The MapR platform also makes it easier to leverage existing applications and solutions by supporting POSIX-compliant, industry-standard NFS.
Additional features to support a diverse set of applications and users include a range of enterprise-grade features: high availability, data protection and disaster recovery support; multi-tenancy and volume support; data and job placement control so applications can be selectively executed in a cluster to take advantage of faster CPUs or SSD drives; and support for a heterogeneous hardware cluster.
