Today, we are proud to announce the next-generation MapR Control System (MCS). Building on the Spyglass Initiative, this new administrative product couples a unified and intuitive management interface with scalable and secure monitoring for on-premises, cloud, and edge clusters. With its integration of files, tables, and streams, MapR has always been the simplest and most cost-efficient platform to manage. Today it gives administrators further control and visibility to manage the converged infrastructure.
Organizations are not only looking to drive a lot more business value from data investments, but also benefit from the wave of infrastructure agility. They are encountering several challenges:
MapR Control System has been redesigned to take an already self-managed platform and make cluster operations easy, autonomous, and intelligent. In its first release, MCS makes it easy for customers to manage their cluster infrastructure and MapR platform using a simple, intuitive, and actionable interface. With a unified management solution, built-in real-time insights, and fast time-to-action, MCS is vital cog in the DataOps movement.
In our conversations with our users, we learned that monitoring was a big piece of day-to-day big data operations. MCS in MapR 6.0 expands on the Spyglass initiative by co-relating events with metrics and logs and providing actionable recommendations. It also simplifies common tasks such as managing tenant quotas, monitoring nodes and services, and configuring data elements.
The top features of MapR 6.0 MCS include:
We released MapR Monitoring with 5.2 to build a customizable and extensible monitoring framework. With 6.0 we are making it even more scalable with the use of MapR Event Store in the core architecture. We are also driving more granular visibility through, for example, volume performance metrics such as latency, IOPs, and throughput. With additional flexible deployment options such as Installer Stanzas and cloud offerings, we are on a mission to empower our administrators.
