MapR adds Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes

The MapR Data Platform now supports Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS), making it easier organizations to adopt and manage their data seamlessly on-premises and on AWS.

MapR previously announced persistent storage for containers to enable the deployment of stateful containerized applications.

Amazon EKS automatically manages the availability, scalability, and scheduling of containers. With MapR, organizations can retain the disaggregation of scaling compute independent of their storage, without having to worry about over subscription. MapR also secures containers from data access vulnerabilities through wire-level encryption and a full end-to-end set of access, authorization, and authentication features.

"Data agility is essential for next-gen analytics and advanced applications,” said Jack Norris, senior vice president, data and applications at MapR. “The robustness of MapR combined with the agility of Amazon EKS enables enterprises to quickly build a flexible and secure production environment for large scale AI and machine learning."

Australia's Macquarie Telecom Deploys MapR

Macquarie Telecom, Australia’s leading managed hosting and business-only telecommunications company, has deployed the MapR data platform to help secure the communications of the Australian government.

Macquarie Telecom’s Government Division today secures telecommunications for 42% of government agencies in Australia. The company provides government employees with a secure Internet gateway, so they can safely access external public websites, downloads, and email services.

“With the growing complexity of the digital threat landscape and the development of SaaS and cloud services, Macquarie Telecom must secure and analyze an exponentially growing amount of data, as well as predict increasingly sophisticated cyber-attacks,” commented Aidan Tudehope, managing director of Macquarie Hosting Group at Macquarie Telecom. “Big data analytics in a hybrid cloud services model is the next big thing in complex security environments such as those of governments. We needed a comprehensive platform that is able to analyze data in the cloud and most importantly in real-time, which is what MapR is providing us with today. We considered several distributions of Hadoop, and chose the MapR Distribution as best for our needs.”

Support Grows for Apache Spark in Big Data Streaming

Cloudera, Databricks, IBM, Intel, and MapR announced their collaboration to collectively broaden the range of tools and technologies in the Hadoop ecosystem that leverage Apache Spark as an underlying processing engine.

Apache Spark is an open-source data analytics cluster computing framework that promises to run programs up to 100x faster than Hadoop MapReduce in memory, or 10x faster on disk.

The companies said their new collaboration expands upon the Spark momentum to include several key Hadoop projects - starting with the Apache Hive SQL engine (Hive). Using Spark as the underlying execution engine, this effort will improve the performance of batch SQL jobs in Hive, while seamlessly maintaining compatibility with the core Hive code base.  The companies are also investigating ways to adapt Apache Pig to leverage Spark, as well as other popular tools, such as Sqoop and Search.
