Auto-Provisioning Templates

Describes the MapR Installer auto-provisioning templates.

Auto-provisioning templates let you select from different provisioning options to address a range of computing requirements. Each template provides a different mix of services and capabilities. You can select the template you need when installing using the MapR Installer web-based interface, MapR Installer Stanzas, or a cloud marketplace offering.

MapR Installer 1.10 provides the following auto-provisioning templates:

MapR Installer 1.9 Updates to the Auto-Provisioning Templates

For MapR Installer 1.9, the following changes to the auto-provisioning templates were implemented:
  • A new auto-provisioning template was added. The Operational Applications with MapR Database and Distributed Query Service template includes the MapR DataBase and the OJAI Distributed Query services.
  • Other templates were changed to enable the use of Drill as an optional selection with the OJAI Distributed Query Service. The following table compares the contents of the various MapR Database templates:

    Template MapR-DataBase OJAI Distributed Query Service* Drill
    MapR Converged Cluster: Batch, interactive and real-time analytics Y Y Y
    Analytics with MapR Database Y Y Y
    Operational Applications with MapR Database Y N N
    Operational Applications with MapR Database and Distributed Query Service Y Y N

    *Prior to MapR Installer 1.9, this service was called the OJAI Query Service.
