MapR 6.1 Unveils Major Data Platform Updates for AI and Analytics

New features lower TCO and streamline security across on-premises, edge, and cloud deployments.

MAPR IS THE LEADING DATA PLATFORM FOR AI AND ANALYTICS

MapR's goal has always been to build the world's best data platform. That's why enterprise-grade capabilities such as security, high-availability, and disaster recovery are built in instead of bolted on. MapR customers have reaped the benefits. The vast majority have moved their workloads to production, many under extremely stringent SLAs. As customer needs evolved, new data-hungry AI and analytics use cases demanded a fresh round of platform innovations. With the 6.1 release, MapR delivers.

MapR 6.1 is aimed at data scientists, developers, and CxOs. It delivers the following breakthrough capabilities:

  • Faster AI and Analytics with lower TCO
  • Simplified development and deployment of AI and analytics applications
  • Streamlined security that protects critical data assets
