Share:
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

On stage yesterday at a Hadoop workshop in New York City MapR Technologies, Inc., the Hadoop technology leader, announced the setting of a new 1TB TeraSort benchmark record of 54 seconds using Google Compute Engine.

This record setting TeraSort benchmark broke the one minute barrier with 1,003 servers, 4,012 cores and 1,003 disks as compared to the previous record set by Yahoo. The prior documented record of 62 seconds was set by Yahoo running Apache Hadoop on 1,460 servers, 11,680 cores and 5,840 disks.

“To set this record in a virtualized cloud environment is a testament to Google Compute Engine's high performance infrastructure,” said M.C. Srivas, CTO and cofounder of MapR Technologies. “This demonstrates the viability of cloud infrastructures for large-scale workloads. MapR is the clear Hadoop performance leader achieving the record time with 1/6 the disks, 1/3 cores and 2/3 the servers.”

Attendees at O'Reilly Strata Conference + Hadoop World 2012 are invited to visit the MapR booth to learn more about the enterprise-grade Hadoop distribution and this record-breaking benchmark.
