NEW ORAAH RELEASE 2.6.0: Introducing support for Apache Spark MLlib machine learning algorithms from R.
The latest release of Oracle R Advanced Analytics for Hadoop (ORAAH), release 2.6.0, is one of the components in the Oracle Big Data Connectors release 4.5 software suite, an option to the Oracle Big Data Appliance. At its core, ORAAH provides an R interface for manipulating data stored in HDFS, using both HIVE transparency capabilities and mapping HDFS as direct input into Machine Learning algorithms that can run as Map Reduce jobs or inside an Apache Spark container.
New to the release 2.6.0 is a set of APIs that allows the ORAAH user to access nine different Apache Spark MLlib algorithms from one line of R code.
