Skytree Announces Extended Partnership With Hortonworks Increasing Support for Spark and YARN

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 15, 2014) -  Strata + Hadoop World -- Skytree®, The Machine Learning Company™, today announced that it is expanding its relationship with Hortonworks® to integrate with YARN and Spark more closely. Building on their current combined offering, which allows organizations to run Skytree software on existing Hortonworks-based Hadoop clusters without moving data, the expanded relationship improves organizations' access to flexible methods for complex, fast-moving data sets for high value, high complexity analytic problems.

"Hortonworks is helping its customers build a modern data architecture that gives users the ability to store data in a single location and interact with it in multiple ways in order to extract higher value," said John Kreisa, vice president of strategic marketing at Hortonworks. "Skytree's Infinity platform, with its native integration with YARN and the ability to leverage Spark as the analytics engine, addresses advanced analytics workloads with performance and accuracy at big data scale."

This extension further adds to Skytree's partnership with Hortonworks. Previously, enterprises deploying big data programs with Hortonworks could easily access Skytree Server and its best-in-class machine learning algorithms for everything from financial services to predictive customer analytics. With the advancements of Skytree Infinity, Hortonworks' customers can gain greater integration between Skytree machine learning and YARN and Spark for advanced analytic solutions without moving data.

"Skytree is recognized as the leader in advanced analytics on big data, providing customers with the most scalable and accurate machine learning technology," said Sachin Chawla, vice president of engineering at Skytree. "Now Skytree Infinity further enables the integration of advanced and comprehensive machine learning with industry standard enterprise architecture. Toward this end, we are enhancing the partnership with Hortonworks to support this initiative through YARN and Apache Spark."
