MapR Technologies, Fusion-io Boost HBase Performance
MapR and Fusion-io will demonstrate significant performance gains by combining the Hadoop-based MapR M7 big data platform with the Fusion ioMemory system when running read-intensive HBase applications.
HBase application performance is often limited by disk storage bottlenecks, according to MapR. Using Fusion ioMemory in conjunction with the MapR system improved performance by a factor of 25, according to the company.
Adoption of the HBase open-source database for high-performance computing tasks has been slowed by I/O performance limitations.
