HP goes deep with predictive analytics
HP has launched Haven Predictive Analytics, which is said to speed and operationalize large-scale machine learning and statistical analysis. Powered by HP's Distributed R, the new release dramatically improves performance and enables users to analyze much larger data sets than were previously possible, claims HP.
The company highlights the following features:
- Distributed R—a new high-performance analytical engine based on the open source R language developed with HP Labs to tackle big data predictive analytics tasks;
- data acceleration and native SQL support with HP Vertica—native integration with the columnar MPP database increases overall data access performance by up to 5X and enables a broader community of developers and DBAs to put predictive analytics into action;
- out-of-the-box-algorithms—a comprehensive set of proven, out-of-the-box parallel algorithms that produce accurate and consistent results with mature standard R algorithms; and
- open source—the new offering is free and fully compatible with the open source R language and tools and backed by enterprise support from HP and priced per node.
