An open source big data platform
LucidWorks has released LucidWorks Big Data, an application development platform designed to integrate into the foundational layer of big data implementations. Built on a foundation of key Apache open source projects, LucidWorks Big Data enables organizations to quickly uncover, access and evaluate large volumes of previously dark data in order to make better business decisions.
The company claims LucidWorks Big Data is the only complete development platform that includes:
- a unified development platform for developing big data applications;
- a certified and tightly integrated open source stack--Hadoop, Lucene/Solr, Mahout, NLP, Hive;
- a single uniform REST API;
- out-of-the-box provisioning--cloud or on premise; and
- re-tuned software by open source industry experts.
