What are the FUSE-based POSIX clients and what are the differences between the Basic and Platinum clients?
The MapR FUSE-based POSIX Client allows app servers and client nodes to read and write data directly to a MapR cluster like a Linux filesystem.
The FUSE-based MapR POSIX client runs as a userspace process to connect to one or more MapR clusters. The necessary FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace) library (libfuse) is bundled with POSIX client package. With the installation of the POSIX client package, the MapR POSIX client performs operations like read and write on the filesystem exposed by FUSE.
With the 5.1 release, MapR provides two separate POSIX client packages, each with different licensing terms and performance tiers. Each package implies a specific MapR filesystem throughput optimization in terms of the number of gigabytes per second throughput.
MapR POSIX Client Base license includes up to 10 clients free with both Community and Converged Editons and provides up to 1G/sec throughput each.
The MapR POSIX Client Platinum license is a paid license with up to 5G/sec throughput each and is provided by MapR Package mapr-posix-client-platinum.
