According to a new press release, “MapR® Technologies, Inc., provider of the industry’s next generation data platform for AI and Analytics, today announced the immediate availability of MapR Ecosystem Pack (MEP) 6.1, giving developers and data scientists maximum flexibility in how they access data and build powerful AI/ML, real-time analytics and stateful containerized applications. With the release of MEP 6.1, MapR expands on the Kafka ecosystem, adds new language support for the MapR document database and support for Container Storage Interface (CSI). MEP 6.1 further delivers on the need to enable consumption of data by the broadest possible set of applications and tools with new capabilities.”
Those capabilities include, “Implementation of Container Storage Interface (CSI) for Kubernetes delivers persistent storage for compute running in Kubernetes-managed containers. This future-proofs Kubernetes+Storage deployments. Unlike the Kubernetes Flexvol-based volume plugin, storage is no longer tightly coupled or dependent on Kubernetes releases. This creates greater stability because the storage interface is decoupled entirely from critical Kubernetes components allowing separation of privileges as CSI components do not need full privileges of Kubernetes components. With the implementation of Container Storage Interface (CSI), persistent data layer for Kubernetes and other Container Orchestration (CO) tools, such as Mesos and Docker Swarm are now future-proofed.”
