I’m writing to share some good news about the MapR Distribution on Amazon EMR. As of 4/6, version 4.0.2 of the MapR Distribution including Hadoop will be available for customers to deploy using Amazon EMR. Customers can quickly and easily use Amazon EMR to deploy and manage MapR, which features updated Apache projects - including YARN and Hive 0.13 - and takes advantage of new features, including promotable mirrors, that MapR has added to our differentiated MapR data platform.

I am excited to share some good news about the MapR Distribution on Amazon EMR. First, Amazon Web Services has added support for the latest generation Amazon EC2 instance families with the Community (M3), Enterprise (M5), and Enterprise Database (M7) editions of the MapR Distribution in Amazon EMR. This means that you can now create Amazon EMR clusters with the MapR Distribution using the M3, C3, R3, I2, and G2 instance families.
