New reference architecture from MapR, HP


MapR Technologies, Inc. and HP have given the big data market something it has been looking for. They collaborated on a new reference architecture for big data workloads.

The technology, known as the HP (NYSE: HPQ) Reference Architecture for MapR M5, can be used by customers to accelerate performance and improve efficiency in a broad set of use cases across any industry, according to the announcement.

The companies developed, configured and tested the architecture using industry standard benchmarks that validate the return on investment and performance. They have made the architecture available for use by value-added resellers in support of customers in need of big data.

The MapR Distribution can analyze thousands of system parameters to optimize application performance, improve uptime and provide insight into a company's IT infrastructure. It uses HP ProLiant Gen8 servers for the analysis.

Jack Norris, vice president of marketing at MapR, said his company's leadership in Hadoop and the HP ProLiant servers provide a platform to store, manage and process data at scale and give confidence to customers deploying the reference architecture as a blueprint for success when working with big datasets.
