Why Choose MapR?

All Data. One Platform. Every Cloud. Limitless Possibilities

MapR Makes DataOps Easier

MapR 6.0 powers DataOps, helping you unleash greater value from all your data in less time. The data struggle is real. Last-generation and even newer technologies are limiting and lead to silos across the organization, which hinder innovation, collaboration, and access to data.

MapR has been working hard for many years to make DataOps more effective. The way we did that is with a very innovative technology platform that really thought about the comprehensive needs of the DataOps community.

MapR Converged Data Platform

MapR Data Technologies is a visionary Silicon Valley enterprise software company that pioneered one platform for all data across every cloud. This approach is the industry’s first modern data system. At the core is the MapR Converged Data Platform that enables simultaneous analytics and applications as data happens for companies to create new, intelligent and modern applications.

One Platform

The MapR Converged Data Platform enables direct processing of files, tables, and event streams. Unlike "connected" environments that require complex integrations and orchestration, convergence offers a streamlined architecture that enables real-time insights, a consistent security framework across compute engines, higher resource utilization, and reduced administrative overhead.

Merge your analytical and operational applications


High Availability

High availability (HA) is the ability of a system to remain up and running despite unforeseen failures, avoiding unplanned downtime or service disruption.

Real-time Streaming

MapR Streams is a global publish-subscribe event streaming system for Big Data. It is the only Big Data streaming system to support global event replication reliably at IoT scale.

Ease of Data Integration

MapR provides complete random read-write capable, POSIX compliant, highly available, high performance NFS access for production use.

Real Multi-tenancy Including YARN

The MapR Platform provides features to logically partition a physical cluster to provide separate administrative control, data placement, job execution, and network access.

Snapshots: Complete Data Protection

MapR Snapshots provide protection without duplicating the data. You can take a snapshot of a 1 PB cluster in seconds with no additional data storage.

Lowest Total Cost of Ownership

The architectural advantages of the MapR Platform show cost differences of 20-50% in terms of total cost of ownership (TCO) across capital and operational expenses.

MapR Regulatory standards support

MapR-Supported Enterprise Regulatory Standards

Organizations of all sizes are seeing an increase in audit and compliance demands from regulators and customers. The MapR Converged Data Platform is designed from the ground up to empower MapR customers to be compliant with many of these standards. Compliance with standards is just one way that MapR helps customers mitigate risk around today’s security threats and breaches.

See how Hadoop works on the MapR Platform


Hadoop is built to process large amounts of data from terabytes to petabytes, and beyond. It delivers greater business impact when used as part of the MapR Converged Data Platform. The MapR Platform combines operational and analytical workloads that drive business insights in real time that are not feasible in other environments that suffer from complex integrations between disparate data silos.
