The data arrives in ever greater amounts at Solutionary Inc., an Omaha, Neb.-based managed security services provider (which runs a largely Java shop). Handling that data with familiar database technology proved difficult, so the company's software development leader called on new Java-based Hadoop data technologies including MapR HBase, a data store often implemented along with Hadoop. MapR took Java out of the M7 platform equation, rewriting its M7 distro in C/C++, thus, forgoing two layers of Java Virtual Machines (JVMs) and standard Java garbage collection.
