SAN JOSE, Calif., June 3 — Skytree, the Machine Learning Company, today announced that its predictive analytics software is now available on Apache Hadoop YARN to deliver agile analytics on Hadoop clusters. Skytree’s flagship product — Skytree Server — is built to provide high-performance Machine Learning and takes advantage of the multi-workload capabilities enabled by YARN’s increased reliability, scalability and manageability.

“With open technology platforms driving innovation and performance, most of our customers are adopting Hadoop-based architectures to handle their Big Data needs, from incorporating multiple data sources to using new types of access methods,” said Jin Kim, vice president of marketing at Skytree. “We are committed to supporting the latest Hadoop developments like YARN, which remove the technical constraints associated with traditional MapReduce.”

Hortonworks, the leading contributor to and provider of 100-percent open source Apache Hadoop, is empowering enterprises to run multiple applications natively in Hadoop using a common resource management. As part of the YARN Ready certification program, Skytree will continue to collaborate with Hortonworks to provide customers with high-performance, flexible advanced analytics and big data management.

“As enterprises continue to deploy Hadoop applications to derive net-new insight from their data, Hortonworks is committed to delivering innovative tools together with partners like Skytree,” said John Kreisa, vice president of strategic marketing at Hortonworks. “By joining YARN Ready, our new program for integrating applications with YARN-based Hadoop, Skytree can provide best-in-class predictive insights on top of the Hortonworks Data Platform, ensuring that applications deliver business-critical results and high-performance Machine Learning.”

YARN makes Hadoop 2.0 a true multi-use platform that is more flexible, efficient, and shareable than Hadoop 1.0. With this next version of Hadoop, Skytree on YARN enables customers to leverage better scheduling and resource utilization for Machine Learning based analytics. Skytree Server version 12.11 is compatible with the YARN architecture of Hadoop.
