back to article MapR floats Streams for integrated big-data stack

MapR has unveiled a converged cluster plan to do away with emerging silos in big data. The NoSQL startup today announced Streams as the newest part of what the firm has branded the MapR Converged Data Platform. MapR joins fellow Hadoop spinners Hortonworks and Cloudera in the handy platform branding stakes, with Hortonworks …

Just some corrections.

First, you don't need to run a separate cluster for spark. You have YARN.

And with MR2 (YARN) you could in theory run storm on the same cluster. Albeit you have to monitor the cluster and storm which will run outside of YARN to make sure that you're not overloading the cluster machines.

It will be interesting to see more on Streams. To date, MapR has built better mousetraps when compared to Apache's release(s).

So, it's a proprietary Kafka clone?

I'm sure this will, like MapRFS, be an overwhelming success.

There's Kafka, Akka, Storm, Apex, Flink, etc ... all to choose from.

MapR built a better mousetrap in their MapRFS that to this day Apache projects haven't matched yet.

MapR built a better mousetrap in their MapRDB that is more stable and secure than HBase.

As to your cynical/sarcastic comment... if you want commercial grade performance, you choose MapR.

When you look at Big Data defections between the vendors, we see mainly Cloudera and Hortonworks fighting over each other. MapR has had the least number of defections than either of the two other vendors.

Just something to think about.

Re: @AC

Kafka, Akka, Storm, Apex and Flink are all different products for different purposes.

If "look at the defections" you won't find anything. Cloudera and MapR are private companies and HW don't publish that information. It's also not a relevant number at this stage. The market is growing, conservatively speaking, at at least 50% year-on-year. If you're trumpeting poaching a few customers from the big boys, you've got problems.

MapR are the also-ran (probably not even top 5 if you count EMR, AzureHD, Oracle etc.). Playing into a market built on open source collaboration with overpriced, proprietary clones was never going to play.
