MapR Technologies, Inc. the company leading next generation big data analytics technology was founded in 2009 by innovators who have lead multiple companies from early stage to category-leading positions resulting in significant business value.
MapR?s mission is to bring the next generation distribution for Hadoop, Map/Reduce and distributed storage to Web 2.0, enterprise and government sectors that expands usage and eliminates barriers to adoption. MapR is headquartered in Silicon Valley and backed by Lightspeed Venture Partners and New Enterprise Associates.
MapR is an enterprise-class distribution for Hadoop that provides high availability, data protection and disaster recovery, and is much easier to administer and use.
Apache Hadoop is a software framework that supports data-intensive distributed applications under a free license. It enables applications to work with thousands of nodes and petabytes of data. Hadoop was inspired by Google's MapReduce and Google File System (GFS) papers. Hadoop is a top-level Apache project being built and used by a global community of contributors, using the Java programming language. Yahoo! has been the largest contributor to the project, and uses Hadoop extensively across its businesses.
Hadoop is the critical technology powering data intensive applications that are the backbone for companies like Yahoo and Facebook. Deployments continue to grow in Web 2.0 companies and are rapidly gaining adoption in traditional market segments with deployments in government financial services, energy, oil and gas, genomics and digital media entertainment.
Hadoop continues to grow in adoption and market share running in both internal and external cloud computing environments.
Hadoop today is a very raw batch-only technology that is resource intensive and suffers from outages and data loss. The value of Hadoop is the widespread Hadoop API adoption and the resulting growth in Hadoop experienced technologists and applications.
MAPR ? THE PRODUCT:
MapR?s extensive engineering efforts have resulted in the first software distribution for running Hadoop and HBase applications that provides extreme high performance, dependability, and ease of development and administration. The MapR distribution combines MapR developed intellectual property with open source components resulting in the Apache the industry?s only differentiated distribution that meets the needs of both the largest and emerging Hadoop installation.
MapR provides world record performance with customers reporting 2 to 5X performance advantages. MapR provides fully active high availability and data protection capabilities making Hadoop an acceptable platform for business critical data and applications. MapR removes well documented scalability barriers that cause larger Hadoop installations to implement costly workarounds.
MapR also transforms Hadoop from a batch-only platform into a real time analytics platform. MapR can return the answers to analytic questions in seconds rather than minutes or hours.
