Drill Storage and Format Plugin Support Matrix

MapR supports Apache Drill running on the MapR distribution of Hadoop as the underlying storage platform in single or a multi-node deployments. See the Drill Support Matrix for versioning information.

MapR supports Apache Drill deployed without Hadoop in a standalone configuration on a single node, however MapR does not support multi-node standalone cluster deployments of Apache Drill. Note that Apache Drill itself does not require Hadoop.

MapR does not support Drill running on other distributions of Hadoop as the underlying storage platform, such as Cloudera and Hortonworks.
