What is MapR? Why MapR ? Explain MapR Ecosystem Packs (MEP)

What is MapR?

MapR is one of the Big Data Distribution. It is a complete enterprise distribution for Apache Hadoop which is designed to improve Hadoop’s reliability, performance, and ease of use.

Why MapR?

1. High Availability:




MapR provides High Availability features such as Self – Healing it means that no Namenode architecture.

It has job tracker High Availability and NFS. MapR achieves only distributing its file system metadata.

MapR provides mirroring facility which allows users to enable policies and mirror data. It automatically within the multinode cluster or single node cluster between on-premise and cloud infrastructure

3.Record Performance:

MapR is a world record performance cost only $9 to the earlier cost of $5M at a  speed of 54 sec. And it handles the large size of clusters like 2,200 nodes.

4.Consistent Snapshots:

MapR is the only big data distribution which provides a consistent, point in time recovery because of its unique read and writes storage architecture.

5. Complete Data Protection:

MapR has own security system for data protection in cluster level.

6.Compression:

MapR provides automatic behind the scenes compression to data. It applies compression automatically to files in the cluster.
