Congrats to our partner, Revolution Analytics, on the general availability of Revolution R Enterprise 7 (RRE7). With this release, you can now run R natively in Hortonworks Data Platform by simply moving their R-powered analytics to Hadoop. Users will be able to run the high-performance distributed R functions in Revolution R Enterprise without having to move the data out of Hadoop, and using the Hadoop nodes as a parallel computation grid.
Keen to get started? You can with this R Enterprise and Hadoop via the Hortonworks Sandbox!
In this tutorial the user will be introduced to Revolution R Enterprise and how it works with the Hortonworks Sandbox. A data file will be extracted from the Sandbox using ODBC and then analyzed using R functions inside Revolution R Enterprise.
