Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced that MapR's M7 big data platform is now available through Amazon's cloud computing services. The M7 platform claims to improve the dependability, performance and usability of NoSQL- and Hadoop-based applications.
M7 is available through Amazon Elastic MapReduce (EMR), and deployments can scale to thousands of nodes per cluster.
“MapR’s latest technology accomplishment with the availability of the MapR M7 Distribution is providing ground breaking capabilities for Apache HBase applications to enhance Big Data operations,” said MapR CEO and co-founder John Schroeder. “Customers that want added flexibility, scalability and cost-effectiveness in the cloud can gain further benefits from MapR’s technology via AWS.”
