Earlier this year, I published a series of posts on the deployment of Apache Drill to Azure. While the steps covered in those posts work, I’d like to speed up the process significantly. With the MapR Converged Data Platform available in the Azure Marketplace, I can have a Drill-enabled MapR cluster up and running much faster and with much less effort.

MapR has worked closely with Azure to develop sandboxes that enable users to do a proof of concept with the MapR Converged Data Platform. These sandboxes, which are pre-loaded and preconfigured with the MapR software and the required supporting operating system, can be launched on the Azure Marketplace portal.

If you’ve been keeping tabs on all the great product enhancements that have been coming out of MapR, you will know that the 5.2 version of the MapR Converged Data Platform went GA this summer. It takes a few cycles to make the platform available on the AWS marketplace, largely due to the testing efforts required.

This blog describes how to get an instance of the MapR-DB Document Database Developer Preview image running on Amazon AWS using one of the pre-configured AMI images supplied by MapR. With this AMI, you can start writing JSON-based applications on MapR-DB using the open source Open JSON Application Interface, or OJAI.

As a follow-up to my previous post on MapR-DB, I want to describe how to index MapR-DB table data in near real-time into Elasticsearch on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).

Nearly one year ago the Hadoop community began to embrace Apache Spark as a powerful batch processing engine. Today, many organizations and projects are augmenting their Hadoop capabilities with Spark. As part of this trend, the Apache Hive community is working to add Spark as an execution engine for Hive. The Hive-on-Spark work is being tracked by HIVE-7292 which is one of the most popular JIRAs in the Hadoop ecosystem. Furthermore, three weeks ago, the Hive-on-Spark team offered the first demo of Hive on Spark.

I often get asked, “What is the easiest way to get hands-on experience with MapR?” The best way is to try the MapR Sandbox, a single-node MapR cluster that you can run on your laptop. However, Hadoop clusters are never built with just one server, and some MapR features require multiple nodes, or even multiple clusters. To get hands-on with a MapR installation that more closely resembles what you might deploy on hardware, I suggest you deploy a MapR cluster in the Amazon cloud, using the MapR Installer. This blog post will walk you through that process.

Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR) makes it easy to provision and manage Hadoop in the AWS Cloud. The latest webinar from the Amazon Web Services Partner webinar series, titled “Hadoop in the Cloud: Unlocking the Potential of Big Data on AWS,” showed examples of how to use Amazon EMR with the MapR Distribution for Apache Hadoop, and outlined the advantages of using the cloud to increase flexibility and accelerate projects while lowering costs.
