MapR Technologies, Inc., provider of a leading distribution for Apache™ Hadoop®, has announced that MapR-DB is now available for unlimited production use in the freely-downloadable MapR Community Edition. MapR-DB was recently recognized by an independent research firm as the highest scored NoSQL key-value database for current offering among all reviewed vendors. Companies can reduce architectural complexity, lower costs and speed business results with the integrated, high performance NoSQL and Hadoop solution.

MapR-DB is an in-Hadoop database that integrates natively with Hadoop. It supports automatic sharding and re-balancing of the cluster to support broader scale,” wrote Noel Yuhanna, principal analyst, in a recent Forrester Research report. “MapR customers have deployed all types of workloads including transactional, analytical, predictive analytics, and mixed. Since MapR provides NoSQL key-value integration with Hadoop, MapR customers often deploy a mixed workload in a single cluster.”

Operational analytic environments require a balanced combination of reads, writes and analytics in applications such as fraud detection/prevention, real-time product recommendations, or user authentication. Increasingly, customers are also seeking real-time transactional or streaming applications in environments like Internet of Things, sensor data and log analytics. Typically, separate sets of technologies handle the database operations and the analytical jobs, resulting in complex architectures. However, MapR uniquely can handle both these requirements in one powerful platform.

With industry-leading speeds, MapR-DB was benchmarked using OpenTSDB to ingest over 100 million data points per second on only four nodes, giving customers a way to quickly load data to power real-time, data-driven applications at scale.

As a customer experience and marketing analytics solution provider for the telecommunications industry, we needed to upgrade our solution to handle even larger volumes of data and transactions,” said Atzmon Hen-tov, vice president of research and development at Pontis. “MapR-DB, combined with the MapR Distribution, provides us with the performance boost and reliability to handle an unlimited number of customers and an infinite amount of customer events.  In fact, the Pontis solution is operational 24×7, enabling us to work with some of the biggest telecommunications businesses around the world.”
