SAP Digital Interconnect chose the MapR Distributed File and Object Store (MapR XD) because they required a modular, componentized architecture with implicit Hadoop features and enhanced performance that could run on commodity hardware or in the cloud. Cost was an important factor.
SAP Digital Interconnect chose MapR XD as the underlying storage layer with SAP IQ because of its scalability, flexibility, speed, and cost.
“MapR XD provided us with a huge amount of storage for a fairly low cost, which was ultra-critical for us. Storage was our biggest challenge because it’s the largest consumer of resources. MapR XD was the only choice. No other file system allowed us the flexibility to grow at the rates we needed or gave us tunable performance without having to get into huge engagements of changing out components of massive traditional enterprise solutions.”
