Big data in the public cloud is now a click away with Apache Hadoop distributor MapR Technologies MapR Distribution on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace. The marketplace distribution allows enterprises to fast launch Hadoop and adds integrated billing from AWS.
With this announcement, all three editions of the MapR Distribution — Community Edition, Enterprise Edition and Enterprise Database Edition — are all available on AWS, including support of Apache Spark for rapid development of batch, interactive and streaming applications. MapR uses AWS CloudFormation templates to create reliable Hadoop clusters on AWS that are ideal for long-lived workloads.
Features from MapR like mirroring and MapR-DB table replication will allow enterprises to build both cloud and on-premises hybrid deployment models, and then “burst” analytic or operational applications into the cloud. Additionally, native NFS capabilities in MapR make it simple for customers to move data in the cloud and integrate wide-ranging data sets and applications.
Commenting Steve Wooledge, VP, Product Marketing, MapR Technologies said. “We’ve had an established relationship with AWS through the availability of MapR on EMR and now the addition of our products for purchase on AWS Marketplace expands options for customers who want to run real-time Hadoop applications in the AWS Cloud and impact their business as it happens.”
