MapR boosts performance for its commercial HBase software

Hadoop startup MapR has released a new version of its commercial HBase database, called M7. According to a press release, “HBase applications can now benefit from MapR’s high performance platform to address one of the major issues for on-line applications, consistent read latencies in the less than 20 millisecond range across varying workloads.” MapR released M7 in May and claims its architectural improvements over open source HBase result in a faster, easier experience.
