PALO ALTO, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Analytics, the leading commercial provider of software, services and
support for the open source R project, today unveiled the latest version
of Revolution (News - Alert) R Enterprise, its commercial-grade analytics software
built upon the world's most powerful open
source R statistics language for R-based enterprise-class data
analytics. Revolution R Enterprise 6.1 introduces several new advances
in high-performance predictive analytics. It gives users new ability to
create big data decision trees, and easily extract and perform
predictive analytics on data that is stored in the Hadoop Distributed
File System (HDFS).
"Revolution Analytics is dedicated to helping organizations and R
developers leverage the power of R for real time data analytics," said
David Rich, Revolution Analytics CEO. "Our new release delivers several
new features to help organizations with complex and fast-growing data
sets make sense of big data. With this new version, Revolution Analytics
once again sets a new standard for data analytics."
Revolution R Enterprise 6.1 includes the following new capabilities:
Big data decision trees. The new "rxDTree" function is a
powerful tool for fitting classification and regression trees, which
are among the most frequently used algorithms for data analysis and
data mining. The implementation provided in Revolution Analytics'
RevoScaleR package is parallelized, scalable, distributable and
designed wit big data in mind. Revolution R Enterprise continues to
offer a wide range of other big-data analysis algorithms, including
summary statistics, crosstabs, regression, generalized linear models
and K-means clustering.
New ability to analyze data from Hadoop Distributed File System
(HDFS). With more and more data stored in Hadoop, this new option
lets data scientists read data from HDFS and apply big-data
statistical models from Revolution R Enterprise.
Improved performance for 'Big Data' files. RevoScaleR's 'XDF'
file format provides fast access to big data. With new compression
technology the size of XDF files can be reduced, allowing for
higher-performance analytics throughput and faster transfers into
clusters or cloud processing systems.
Improved Linux installer. The installation process on
Linux servers has been streamlined to meet stringent IT requirements,
especially for non-root installs.
