MapR Technologies, provider of a Converged Data Platform, has announced comprehensive support for microservices that leverage continuous analytics, automated actions, and rapid response to better impact business as it happens. New capabilities in the MapR Platform range from microservices application monitoring and management to integrated support for agile microservices application development.

Support for event-driven microservices relies on underlying new capabilities including:
* Comprehensive monitoring of cluster-wide operations and resource usage in a single pane of glass view
* Microservices-specific volumes for application versioning, simplifying the development lifecycle and production deployment
* Microservices for A-B and multivariate testing enabling rapid machine learning model development and optimization

“As one of the fastest growing video advertising technology companies in the world, we depend on our ability to quickly develop enhancements and deliver data agility to our customers,” said Manny Puentes, CTO Altitude Digital. “Event-driven microservices provide a critical capability to help us be more agile, adapt quickly and drive value to our customers.”

Event-driven microservices on the MapR Converged Data Platform allow developers to have the freedom to combine a range of machine learning and analytic functions directly on the data. Microservices that seamlessly leverage file, database, and streaming services can be orchestrated on the Converged Data Platform with an underlying publish-and-subscribe framework that integrates data-in-motion and data-at-rest to support continuous and low latency processing. This highly effective approach integrates information from the latest events with deep insights from accumulated data.

These microservices capabilities benefit from key features of the MapR Converged Data Platform including:
* Unified security with Access Control Expressions for data volumes, including streaming data
* Support for agile and containerized application development on Docker, including applications with persistent data requirements
* Converged analytic, processing, and messaging services in the same physical nodes for real-time requirements and greater simplicity
* Support for hybrid cloud microservices architectures with global message service, global data namespace, bidirectional data flows with loop detection, and service scale out capabilities
* Logical and functional isolation of services. Ideal for machine learning model training and evaluation
* Continuous high availability and multi-master mission-critical disaster recovery capabilities

Microservices applications and other converged application development is simplified on the MapR Platform. Developers have the freedom to combine file, database, document, and streaming analytics functionality. With a single line of code, developers can easily persist complex data types with JSON in MapR-DB, so they can focus on developing innovative features. Customizable dashboards deliver full visibility of cluster hardware and software operations, utilization, and service logs. The Exchange, part of the MapR Converge Community, provides a public forum for sharing best practices around microservices, dashboards, and code snippets.
