0xdata is demonstrating the second generation of its H2O machine learning and predictive analytics engine for Hadoop, R and Excel. 0xdata said the new software, known as the "Fluid Vector" release, performs parallel and distributed advanced algorithms on big data at speeds up to 100 times faster than competing predictive analytics tools.
H2O runs in-memory and uses the Hadoop Distributed File System for its storage platform. Users can pull in data from Microsoft Excel, the RStudio developer environment, SQL, NoSQL, S3 or HDFS using a REST API.
0xdata's goal is to bring advanced predictive analysis capabilities to a broader audience of users, said CEO SriSatish Ambati.
