Real Time



MapR delivers the latest big data innovations running on top of an enterprise-grade data platform that can natively process files, tables and event streams. Converged Data Platform provides scalable data management and processing services to power data-driven applications based on technologies such as Hadoop, Spark, SQL/NoSQL, JSON, Kafka, and a host of other open source and commercial technologies. The MapR Converged Data Platform can support batch, interactive, and real-time application models on a vast scale. It provides a trusted technology foundation that can secure, protect, compress, encrypt, backup, and recover data for all applications as a single, high-performance system rather than as a costly, repetitive collection of management tasks across loosely-coupled systems.

Hadoop is Just the Beginning

The big data phenomenon has long been associated with the Hadoop ecosystem, and our commitment to Hadoop has garnered top rankings by leading industry research firms and a superb 99%+ customer retention rate. And our customers expand their deployments beyond Hadoop. With other ascendant technologies such as Apache Spark and NoSQL databases, our customers– like our product architects–must look beyond Hadoop to a holistic approach for capturing and managing data, and for creating exciting new applications.

By pursuing a data-centric vision for a new generation of applications, MapR has created an applications platform that converges the management of data of any size, speed, and format. MapR was recently awarded a patent (US9,207,930) for the architecture of the MapR Converged Data Platform

Seamless Integration with

Existing Enterprise Systems

One of the most profound design decisions made by MapR was to create an enterprise-grade file and storage system to house the data of the Hadoop ecosystem. The MapR Distributed File and Object Store, based on the trusted POSIX/NFS standard, makes it vastly easier to get data in and out of the MapR Platform using familiar enterprise tools. MapR also provides developer programmatic access to data with standard interfaces like SQL, HDFS, HBase, JSON, Kafka, and more.

Continuous, Trusted


With our consistent focus on data integrity, MapR has created a hardened, clustered platform that can withstand multiple hardware failures, data center outages, and malicious attacks and intrusions from cybercriminals. Many proven methods of data protection–such as failover, redundancy and access controls–are built into the MapR Platform.

Big Data with

Enterprise Stability

Game-changing big data applications and analytics will continue to rely on open-source software. As a company founded in and contributing to the open-source world of Hadoop and Spark, MapR continues to define enterprise requirements and best practices for successfully using the latest open source innovations. We deliver monthly updates to some open source software packages to ensure you have the latest innovations

Open Source Innovation on a Trusted Platform

The MapR Converged Data Platform is designed to deliver enterprise-grade data services and commercially supported open source innovations to development teams, IT operations, business analysts, and data scientists. Open source technology provides a fantastic creative force when looking to tackle the sophisticated new challenges that big data–and especially new data–can uncover

Without a converged data platform, critical information can get stuck in data silos and an inefficient use of hardware resources can result in a costly “cluster sprawl” of under-utilized servers and storage. With the MapR Platform, businesses can enjoy real-time insights and take action based on secure, protected, high-fidelity data.

“With MapR, we get scale, performance, and significant cost savings, all while retaining the level of reliability that we had with our previous systems.”

—Mike Brown CTO, comScore
