SAN JOSE, Calif. -- July 12, 2013

MapR Technologies, Inc., the Hadoop technology leader, today announced its
expanded cloud leadership with MapR M7, a Big Data platform for NoSQL and
Apache Hadoop applications, now available through Amazon Elastic MapReduce
(EMR).

MapR M7 provides ease of use, dependability and greater performance for NoSQL
and Hadoop. Amazon EMR makes it easy and cost-effective to deploy and operate
elastic Hadoop clusters on AWS. With just a few mouse clicks or a single line
of code, customers can now launch a dynamically scalable M7 cluster on Amazon
EMR to store or process vast amounts of data.

M7 is fully supported on multiple AWS instance types, including the latest
high performance SSD-backed High I/O instances. It can scale horizontally to
thousands of nodes per cluster. Standard YCSB benchmark tests on AWS High
Storage instances have shown M7 delivering consistent performance of over
100,000 operations per second per node, clearly demonstrating how M7 users can
derive greater utilization from their cloud infrastructure.

“AWS is pleased to offer Amazon EMR with MapR M7,” said Peter Sirota, general
manager for Amazon Elastic MapReduce. “Together, MapR M7 and Amazon EMR is a
powerful combination for our customers.”

“MapR’s latest technology accomplishment with the availability of the MapR M7
Distribution is providing ground breaking capabilities for Apache HBase
applications to enhance Big Data operations,” said John Schroeder, CEO and
co-founder, MapR Technologies. “Customers that want added flexibility,
scalability and cost-effectiveness in the cloud can gain further benefits from
MapR’s technology via AWS.”

The MapR enterprise-grade platform supports a broad set of mission-critical
and real-time production uses and 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
that enables Linux applications and commands to access data directly in the
cluster via the NFS interface that is available with all MapR editions.

With this announcement, all MapR Editions, M3, M5 and M7, are now available
through Amazon EMR.
