Skytree Increases Support for Spark With Extended MapR Partnership

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 15, 2014) - Strata + Hadoop World -- Skytree®, The Machine Learning Company™, today announced an extension of its partnership with MapR Technologies, Inc., provider of the top-ranked distribution for Apache™ Hadoop®, to include support for Apache Spark. As part of the Skytree Infinity platform, the integration will help customers derive greater business value from big data as they scale-out their enterprise data architectures.

"Our open, enterprise-grade Hadoop distribution with support for industry standard APIs enables developers to choose from the widest range of compute frameworks and libraries," said Jon Posnik, vice president, business development, MapR Technologies. "Skytree's Infinity platform with support for the MapR Distribution that includes Apache Spark reinforces our vision and helps customers address critical business problems using advanced analytics at scale for big data."

This extension builds on Skytree's yearlong partnership with MapR. The partnership allowed enterprises deploying big data programs through MapR to use Skytree Server to predict patterns in consumer behavior, movements of markets and variables causing customer churn. Now the advancements of Skytree Infinity better address the needs of MapR customers working with Spark. MapR users can now run advanced analytics solutions based on Skytree software on their existing MapR-based Hadoop clusters without moving their 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. "Skytree Infinity further enables the integration of advanced and comprehensive machine learning with industry standard enterprise architecture from MapR."
