Actian’s platform provides millions of business-savvy SQL users with unconstrained access to Hadoop data repositories, allowing them to run advanced analytics directly on data in the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS).  By processing data up to 30 times faster than the nearest competitor, this unified platform combines the highest performing, fully compliant SQL in Hadoop with a visual data flow framework that leads to faster answers and new insights.

The Actian Analytics Platform is optimized for use with the Hortonworks Data Platform.  As part of the Hortonworks YARN Ready program, users can take advantage of automatically managed resources in Hadoop.  Actian works closely with Hortonworks to ensure total YARN-enablement, giving us common cluster management and data distribution. And, our reference architectures document the best practices for deploying Hortonworks and Actian together.
