MapR Benefits


The main benefits of MapR are its open source engines and tools, its open API and interface, and its real-time streaming. Here are the details:

Users of the MapR Converged Data Platform can expect help when it comes to the direct processing of event files, tables, and streams. Integration and orchestration become a breeze thanks to its convergence. This, in turn, results in a streamlined architecture that supports a security framework that is unswerving across a computer. It also lets users get high resource utilization, reduced administrative overhead, and real-time insights.

Users of this platform are also free to choose from the numerous Apache open source tools and engines provided. Big applications are supported and the system can also remain up and running despite any unexpected failures, thanks to MapR’s open source ecosystem. It also integrates with several open source programs, such as Mahout, Apache, HBase, Hive, Pig, and many others. Users of MapR can also scale as slowly or as quickly as they want since the software provides support for more than one version of Apache projects, since it is a Hadoop vendor.

Because of its open interfaces and API, other vendors like HP, Cisco, SAP, and SAS can easily deploy software applications onto the platform. Developers can integrate the built-in protections of MapR with a commercial processing engine so that they can come up with software applications that are fit for enterprises.

MapR also prides itself as a reliable streaming system of big data, able to perform global event replication at IoT scale. Data integration can also be done with no fuss, providing NFS access that is high-performing, reliable, POSIX compliant, and random read and write capable.
