0xdata recently launched the second generation of its H2O machine learning and predictive analytics engine for Hadoop, R and Excel. 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.
The company's goal is to bring advanced predictive analysis capabilities to a broader audience of users, according to CEO SriSatish Ambati (pictured). H2O runs in-memory and uses the Hadoop Distributed File System for its storage platform.
0xdata, based in Mountain View, Calif., was founded in 2011. Earlier this year, the company raised $1.7 million in venture funding.
