MapR-DB is an enterprise-grade, high performance, in-Hadoop NoSQL (“Not Only SQL”) database management system. It is used to add real-time, operational analytics capabilities to Hadoop. NoSQL primarily addresses two critical data architecture requirements:
- Scalability to address the increasing volumes and velocity of your data
- Flexibility to store the variety of useful data types and formats
MapR-DB goes beyond other NoSQL solutions by providing a reliable platform to run business-critical big data applications. MapR-DB is a multi-model database, supporting the easy-to-use, open source OJAI™(Open JSON Application Interface) API for document database capabilities, as well as an API for wide column data models.
