Runs R analytics in the Revolution R Enterprise platform on Cloudera’s Distribution Including Apache Hadoop
Revolution Analytics, the commercial provider of R software, services and support, has partnered with Cloudera, the provider of Apache Hadoop-based data management software and services, to deliver a joint offering for Big Analytics that runs R analytics in the Revolution R Enterprise platform on Cloudera’s Distribution Including Apache Hadoop (CDH).
"RevoConnectR for Apache Hadoop" is a collection of open-source packages that allows R programmers to access Hadoop HDFS and HBASE data stores in Apache Hadoop directly from R and write MapReduce jobs with R.
Revolution Analytics and Cloudera deliver this Big Analytics offering on the market, uniting R with the complete Apache Hadoop stack to streamline and simplify the path to deriving competitive intelligence and actionable insights from the deluge big data.
Revolution Analytics CEO Norman Nie said the combination of R and Apache Hadoop creates a more powerful analytics offering than what’s previously been on the market for big data.
"R users can now leverage advanced analytics and data stored in Apache Hadoop to tap into more multifaceted dimensions of their data," said Nie.
Cloudera head of Business Development Ed Albanese said this offering, which combines the Cloudera Distribution including Apache Hadoop with Revolution Analytics Enterprise R, is about democratising access to technologies uniquely capable of performing analysis on these new classes of data.
