Because each organization's design, standards, and security policies are different, MapR provides several deployment examples in the form of Azure Resource Manager (ARM) templates. Users are encouraged to use these ARM templates examples as-is, or customize them to better fit a particular situation.
Below is the most current list of pre-defined ARM templates released by MapR. Within the list below, some templates are listed as 'deployment templates', meaning they actually deploy a MapR cluster, while others are listed as 'helper' templates, which create a portion of the cloud environment but don't perform a full MapR deployment. Helper templates can help split tasks between multiple people in an organization in cases where AWS permissions are split between multiple users.
At this time there is only a single deployment ARM template, and it is identical to what is available through the Azure Marketplace. Therefore, we recommend using the Azure Marketplace to deploy MapR instead of running this ARM template directly, as it offers a much better user experience.
