SAN JOSE, Calif. -- June 26, 2013

MapR Technologies, Inc., the Hadoop technology leader, today announced at
Hadoop Summit the results of joint testing with Fusion-io using the Fusion
ioMemory platform and the MapR M7 Big Data platform. The combined solution
accelerated performance 25 times faster for read intensive Apache HBase
applications.

HBase application performance throughput has previously been limited by disk
storage bottlenecks. The combined performance of Fusion-io and MapR break
through these performance barriers to offer an ideal solution for
performance-sensitive NoSQL applications.

MapR’s breakthrough testing results were obtained on a MapR cluster with a
1.2TB Fusion ioDrive2. The Fusion ioMemory platform is built to accelerate
organizations’ most important applications, such as HBase, which integrates
with the MapR M7 platform. Unlike solid state disks, Fusion ioMemory platforms
are architected to manage flash like memory, providing ultra-low latency
performance for databases even in the most demanding datacenters.

“Customers requiring Big Data analytics seek reliable, fast, and easy to
implement solutions,” said Gary Orenstein, Fusion-io executive vice president.
“As these test results demonstrate, running MapR on Fusion ioMemory delivers
significant acceleration, while simultaneously ensuring data reliability in a
solution that fits current datacenter infrastructure.”

“This record is significant because it eliminates one of the barriers to HBase
adoption in high-performance environments,” said Bill Bonin, vice president
business development, MapR Technologies. “Where information assets are growing
at unprecedented rates, enterprises must respond quickly with scale-out
performance in order to benefit from the full power of business analytics.”

The MapR enterprise-grade platform supports a broad set of mission-critical
and real-time production uses. MapR brings unprecedented dependability,
ease-of-use and world-record speed to Hadoop, NoSQL, database and streaming
applications in one unified Big Data platform. MapR is the only distribution
for Hadoop that supports standard Linux commands and provides POSIX-compliant
NFS access.
