According to a new article out of the company, “MapR Technologies, Inc., provider of the top-ranked distribution for Apache™ Hadoop® that integrates web-scale enterprise storage and real-time database capabilities, today announced that Goodgame Studios, a leading free-to-play online game development company, is using MapR to improve the gaming experience for its 270 million registered users worldwide. MapR enables Goodgame Studios to deploy a single open platform that can quickly and easily integrate new technologies, respond to gamer behavior in real-time, reduce costs and increase performance.”

The article continues, “The combined requirements of a highly competitive gaming market, rapid corporate growth, and ambitious development plans have compelled Goodgame Studios to consolidate several clusters into a single cost-effective and high-performance MapR cluster featuring Hadoop, Apache Spark and Apache Drill. Goodgame Studios leverages Apache Mesos instead of YARN as its general resource management system and relies on Spark as its computational and analytics engine. Additionally, the seamless integration of HP Vertica and Drill into the MapR platform as SQL query engines enables Goodgame Studios to immediately explore data managed in MapR-DB, the NoSQL database.”
