We are evaluation MapR, and we are interested in knowing the improvements done for Hive/HBase by Mapr.

MapR is a complete distribution for Apache Hadoop including HBase. The improvements to using HBase with MapR come from the MapR filesystem and MapR control system. For e.g. you will get: 1. Better performance 2. Mirroring and point-in-time snapshots to protect your data 3. High availability of services since there are no single-point-of-failures 4. NFS access to HBase log files 5. Alarms, space-usage tracking, and heatmap for monitoring of the cluster
