Machine Learning: Develop Predictive Models
As machine learning becomes a must-have for business models and forecasts, it’s important to consider frameworks that can be integrated into your big data analytics environments and workflows. The Cray Urika-GX platform is a pre-integrated hardware-software platform that includes Apache Spark™, which provides a machine-learning library, and MLlib, designed for simplicity, scalability and easy integration with other tools.
The Cray Urika-GX platform is designed to accelerate Spark machine learning tasks in a very accessible format with large in-memory compute ability, up to 22 TB DRAM, and dense cores in a standard enterprise rack.
Also included in the Urika-GX system are Hadoop® and the Cray Graph Engine so you can run all your big data analytics workflows on one system and avoid the common overhead of data movement. We also leverage open standards like OpenStack, Mesos and Docker so you can be ready for data in days and then customize for future needs.
