MapR-DB adds real-time, interactive database workloads to analytical environments

MapR-DB is an enterprise-grade, high performance, NoSQL (“Not Only SQL”) database management system. It is used to add real-time, operational analytics capabilities to big data applications. As a multi-model NoSQL database, it supports both JSON document models and wide column data models.

Key Features

  • Real-Time Operational Analytics: You can run MapR-DB in the same cluster as Apache™ Hadoop® and Apache Spark, letting you immediately analyze or process live, interactive data. You can eliminate data silos to speed the data-to-action cycle, while also enabling a more efficient data architecture.
  • Minimal Administrative Overhead: With MapR-DB, you can reduce your administrative overhead by eliminating maintenance tasks that are typical in other NoSQL databases, such as compactions and anti-entropy. You also get mission-critical capabilities like instant failover for high availability and global multi-master replication for disaster recovery.
  • Fine Grained Security: MapR-DB lets you grant access permissions at a granular level using MapR Access Control Expressions (ACEs), which are designed for flexibility and ease-of-use. You can set different permission levels for different roles at the sub-document level (for the JSON document model) or at the column level (for the wide column data model).
