MapR Unveils Platform For IoT Analytics At The Edge
At Strata + Hadoop World in San Jose, Calif., Tuesday, MapR Technologies took the wraps off a new small footprint edition of its Converged Data Platform geared for capturing, processing and analyzing data from internet of things (IoT) devices at the edge.
MapR Edge, designed to work in conjunction with the core MapR Converged Enterprise Edition, provides local processing, aggregation of insights at the core and the ability to then push intelligence back to the edge.
“You can think of it as a mini-cluster that’s close to the source and can do analytics where the data resides, but then send data back to the core,” says Dale Kim, senior director, Industry Solution, at MapR Technologies.
