MapR enterprise-grade platform for HBase and Hadoop available through Amazon Elastic MapReduce (EMR)

MapR Technologies, Inc., the Hadoop technology leader, today announced its expanded cloud leadership with MapR M7, a Big Data platform for NoSQL and Apache Hadoop applications, now available through Amazon Elastic MapReduce (EMR).

MapR M7 provides ease of use, dependability and greater performance for NoSQL and Hadoop. Amazon EMR makes it easy and cost-effective to deploy and operate elastic Hadoop clusters on AWS. With just a few mouse clicks or a single line of code, customers can now launch a dynamically scalable M7 cluster on Amazon EMR to store or process vast amounts of data.

M7 is fully supported on multiple AWS instance types, including the latest high performance SSD-backed High I/O instances. It can scale horizontally to thousands of nodes per cluster. Standard YCSB benchmark tests on AWS High Storage instances have shown M7 delivering consistent performance of over 100,000 operations per second per node, clearly demonstrating how M7 users can derive greater utilization from their cloud infrastructure.

“AWS is pleased to offer Amazon EMR with MapR M7,” said Peter Sirota, general manager for Amazon Elastic MapReduce. “Together, MapR M7 and Amazon EMR is a powerful combination for our customers.”

“MapR’s latest technology accomplishment with the availability of the MapR M7 Distribution is providing ground breaking capabilities for Apache HBase applications to enhance Big Data operations,” said John Schroeder, CEO and co-founder, MapR Technologies. “Customers that want added flexibility, scalability and cost-effectiveness in the cloud can gain further benefits from MapR’s technology via AWS.”

The MapR enterprise-grade platform supports a broad set of mission-critical and real-time production uses and brings unprecedented dependability, ease-of-use and world-record speed to Hadoop, NoSQL, database and streaming applications in one unified Big Data platform. MapR is the only distribution that enables Linux applications and commands to access data directly in the cluster via the NFS interface that is available with all MapR editions.

With this announcement, all MapR Editions, M3, M5 and M7, are now available through Amazon EMR.
