MapR - the next-generation Hadoop distribution that integrates with Linux
Director of Product Management, MapR Technologies, Inc.
The MapR Distribution (http://www.mapr.com/) for Apache's Hadoop
Java-based software framework (for creating data-intensive
distributed applications) makes Hadoop dramatically easier, more
dependable, and faster. In addition, unlike other distributions, it
provides capabilities that allow users to leverage the Linux
ecosystem. For example, the MapR distribution includes a read/write
storage layer with NFS access, allowing users to mount the cluster
and use traditional Linux utilities, ranging from cp and ls to rsync
and grep. In this talk, we'll provide an overview of the MapR
Distribution for Apache Hadoop and its unique capabilities, as well
as a number of interesting use cases from MapR users.
