Revolution Analytics Takes Hadoop to the Next Level

by Developer.com Staff

Revolution Analytics provides commercial tools using the open source R statistics language.

Today, Revolution Analytics announced a new version of Revolution R Enterprise that integrates with Apache's open source Hadoop.

"Together, Hadoop and R can store and analyze massive, complex data," said Saptarshi Guha, developer of the popular RHIPE R package that integrates the Hadoop framework with R in an automatically distributed computing environment. "Employing the new capabilities of Revolution R Enterprise, we will be able to go even further and compute Big Data regressions and more."

The new version of Revolution R includes the XDF "big data" binary file format, high-performance statistical algorithms, tools for data reading and transformation and extensibility.

"The R language's inherent power and extensibility has driven its explosive adoption as the modern system for predictive analytics," said Norman H. Nie, president and CEO of Revolution Analytics.
