In this scenario you got a glimpse of what MapR's all about. You saw some of the basic ways users can interact with MapR for storing data in files, tables, and streams. Please proceed to the next scenario.

For more information about what the MapR data platform is and how you can use it to solve your business needs, see the (MapR Documentation)[].

Don’t stop now! The next scenario will only take about 10 minutes to complete.

Introduction to MapR

Step 1 of 4

Step 1 - Login

The MapR data platform consists of the following three core components:

  1. MapR Filesystem
  2. MapR Database
  3. MapR Event Store for Apache Kafka

In this tutorial you will explore each of these components on a single-node MapR cluster.

User Authentication

MapR supports user authentication with Kerberos or with a username and password. Run the following command to login with basic authentication:

maprlogin password -user mapr

Use password mapr.

Verify that you've authenticated by running the following maprcli command: maprcli node list -columns ip.

MapR can also be administered using the maprcli command or with a web interface known as the MapR Control System (MCS). View the dashboard at https://[[HOST_SUBDOMAIN]]-8443-[[KATACODA_HOST]]

Username: mapr

Password: mapr

When you're finished exploring MCS, return to the Terminal tab and click the Continue button.
