I would like to know, how the Hortonworks is more advantageous over MapR? I need comparison of licensing costs and features between two. Can anyone please help me?

This is something you should discuss with a Sales person: especially licence costs.

The big advantage of HDP is that it is 100% open source and open and always adds the full Apache version of all components. Components are also in Open Hadoop so there is no lock-in like you have with the proprietary components of Mapr ( Map R file system and their proprietary other components )

The second big advantage of Hortonworks is that we have the widest range of committers in the different components so you will get the best support and influence in adding features. Doing a simple feature by feature comparison doesn't really compare these fundamental differences.
