MapR & Cisco Make IT Better

You’re not the only one still loading your data into data warehouses and building marts or cubes out of it. But today’s data requires a much more accessible environment that delivers real-time results. Prepare for this transformation because your data platform and storage choices are about to undergo a re-platforming that happens once in 30 years.

Containers for Big Data: How MapR Expands Containers Use to Access Data Directly | Whiteboard Walkthrough

In this week's Whiteboard Walkthrough, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President of Data and Applications at MapR, explains how the MapR Converged Data Platform opens up the use of containers to the big data environment such that you can access data directly, thus taking advantage of otherwise under utilized assets.


A Better Way to Build a Fraud Detector: Streaming Data and Microservices Architecture | Whiteboard Walkthrough

In this Whiteboard Walkthrough Ted Dunning, Chief Application Architect at MapR, provides some pointers for building better machine learning models, including the advantages of data streams and microservices style design in the example of a credit card fraud detector, the need for metrics, and how reconstruction of data from an auto-encoder can serve as a figure of merit that helps identify good models.

Kafka Connect on MapR | Whiteboard Walkthrough

In this Whiteboard Walkthrough, Ankur Desai, Senior Product Marketing Manager at MapR, describes how Apache Kafka Connect and a REST API simplify and improve agility in working with streaming data from a variety of data sources including legacy database or data warehouse. He also explains the differences in this architecture when you use MapR Streams versus Kafka for data transport.

Open Source Innovations in the MapR Ecosystem Pack 2.0

Over the summer, we introduced the MapR Ecosystem Pack (MEP) which is a natural evolution of our existing software update program that decouples open source ecosystem updates from core platform updates. MEP gives our customers quick access to the latest open source innovations while also ensuring cross-project compatibility in any given MEP version.

Watch this webinar to learn more about the new open source project enhancements in MEP 2.0. We cover:

How Spark is Enabling the New Wave of Converged Cloud Applications

Apache Spark has become the de-facto compute engine of choice for data engineers, developers, and data scientists because of its ability to run multiple analytic workloads with a single, general-purpose compute engine.

But is Spark alone sufficient for developing cloud-based big data applications? What are the other required components for supporting big data cloud processing? How can you accelerate the development of applications which extend across Spark and other frameworks such as Kafka, Hadoop, NoSQL databases, and more?

Streaming with MapR

MapR Streams is a global publish-subscribe event streaming system for big data. It connects data producers and consumers worldwide in real-time, with unlimited scale. Publishers (data producers) write data to one or more topics in MapR Streams. Subscribers (data consumers) to the topic can read the data instantaneously, anywhere across the globe.

MapR: Converged Advantages in the Cloud | Whiteboard Walkthrough

In this Whiteboard Walkthrough, Ted Dunning, Chief Application Architect at MapR, describes advantages of MapR Converged Data Platform and how they work in the cloud. With files, tables and streams engineered into the same technology, MapR has particular advantages for multi-tenancy in the cloud including common pathnames and common security.
