Deployment in the cloud today is no longer merely about cost. Global reach, country-specific regulations, and scalability all make cloud deployments a necessary deployment model. The innovations built into the MapR Converged Data Platform make the cloud a natural environment for managing big data.
MapR teams up with industry-leading cloud service providers to bring the flexibility, agility and massive scalability of the cloud to big data users. The fully distributed metadata architecture, POSIX-compliant file system and high performance allow cloud users to build homogeneous clusters that scale up and down easily, ingest data into the cluster using standard interfaces and get the best ROI from ephemeral instances.
