Why Cisco and MapR?

  • Together, Cisco and MapR rank 1 and 4 for best 1-TB results in the TPCx-HS transaction processing and database benchmarks. We also rank 1, 2, and 5 for 10-TB results.
  • Cisco UCS M5 servers, utilizing the Intel™ Xeon processor, can provide world-record-setting performance:
    • 86% better performance
    • 50% better SAP Sales and Distribution performance
    • 78% faster Java application performance
  • Save money by assigning specific jobs and data to specialized nodes and optimizing hardware use. Using Cisco UCS clusters and MapR XD volumes, you can run different types of storage in the data lake to reduce costs and increase performance. MapR XD and Cisco UCS can utilize your existing investments in NVMe technology, solid state disk, and PCIE flash storage.
  • Cisco UCS enables significant time and cost savings:
    • 62% reduction in management costs
    • 83% reduction in provisioning time
    • 78% reduction in cables/switches with UCS
  • With advanced features, such as an optimized shuffle algorithm, direct access to disk, built-in compression, and a framework written entirely in C++, the MapR XD and Cisco platform overcomes bottlenecks in traditional architectures, processing 25% more data in 10% of the time.
  • The MapR Converged Data Platform and Cisco UCS Integrated Infrastructure joint solution processes, stores, and ingests data faster than any other solution. Cisco UCS M5 servers, utilizing the Intel® Xeon® processor, provide industry-leading performance.
  • Plus, the joint MapR XD on Cisco UCS solution handles data-intensive streaming workloads while preserving performance at scale. In fact, MapR and Cisco have set the bar for performance at scale for data-intensive streaming workloads: 2,070 streams in 12.94 milliseconds.
  • Simplify the deployment and management of the Cisco UCS Integrated Infrastructure for Big Data with the MapR Converged Data Platform by enabling policy-driven configuration. Plus, leverage our edge-to-cloud data fabric to centralize management and enable a single, unified platform.
