MapR Technologies, Inc., provider of a distribution for Apache Hadoop, has released MapR-DB for unlimited production use in its freely downloadable MapR Community Edition. Companies can reduce architectural complexity, lower costs, and speed business results with the integrated, high performance NoSQL and Hadoop solution.

“Over the last 18 months, hundreds of customers have successfully deployed MapR-DB to run operational applications directly on Hadoop on our premium edition,” said Tomer Shiran, vice president of product management at MapR Technologies. “With MapR-DB now in the MapR Community Edition, this advantage is available to all individuals and organizations worldwide, enabling new use cases involving data streaming and real-time operational analytics.”

Increasingly, customers seek real-time transactional or streaming applications in environments such as the Internet of Things, sensor data, and log analytics. These operational analytic environments require a balanced combination of reads, writes, and analytics in applications such as fraud detection/prevention, real-time product recommendations, and user authentication.  Typically, separate sets of technologies handle the database operations and the analytical jobs, resulting in complex architectures.

With industry-leading speeds, MapR-DB was benchmarked using OpenTSDB to ingest over 100 million data points per second on only four nodes, giving customers a way to quickly load data to power real-time, data-driven applications at scale.

MapR-DB in the MapR Community Edition is available for download here.
