What is most valuable?

MapR’s strength comes from their file system. Because they start with the raw disk, they are able to expose the storage through various APIs and have the ability to lockdown and secure the file system better than the Apache derivatives… more»

How has it helped my organization?

To be clear, all of the main three vendors are capable of supporting multiple big data use cases. Where they differ is going to be in terms of scalability, supported tools, and the stability of the tools. MapR has MapR-DB, which supports… more»
