How is Read Amplification in Mapr-DB handled?

Mapr-DB claims there is no compaction like hbase to avoid write amplification

But if this is the case how is read amplification handled?

If a row key is distributed across multiple hfiles it will obviously lead to read amplification right? and purpose of compaction came in to existence to avoid this. Now how is Mapr-DB able to overcome this?
