DataRobot Brings Automated Data Science to Hadoop

March 22, 2016

Company’s unique machine learning automation platform certified on Cloudera Enterprise

BOSTON, Mass. Mar. 22, 2016 Data science automation pioneer, DataRobot today announced that their machine learning platform has achieved the highest level of certification on Cloudera Enterprise 5, the modern platform for data management and analytics.

“This is a great day for Hadoop users with a data science backlog due to skills shortage”, said Jeremy Achin, DataRobot CEO and Co-founder.  “Now Cloudera Enterprise users can seamlessly incorporate automated machine learning into their big data analytics environment, with no additional interfaces, protocols, or management skills required,” he added.

Deep Level of Integration:

DataRobot’s broad and deep integration with Cloudera Enterprise enables users to take advantage of key innovations within Cloudera Enterprise and extract the most value from the solution. The integrated solution provides the following benefits:


  • Installs via Parcels – allows DataRobot to deploy new and updated releases using Cloudera Manager with no down time
  • CSD integrated – Allows Cloudera Manager to monitor resources used by DataRobot
  • Kerberos – LDAP/AD support (Authentication)
  • Sentry enabled – Authorization/Governance/Compliance
  • YARN enabled – Resource Manager for multi-tenant environments
  • Uses Spark/MLlib – Flexible, in-memory data processing

“DataRobot’s deep integration with Cloudera Enterprise enables organizations to quickly and easily deploy the solution and focus on gaining useful insight from their machine learning to drive positive business outcomes,” said Tim Stevens, vice president of Business and Corporate Development at Cloudera.

With this announcement DataRobot sets the bar high, as the only Cloudera ISV certified on Spark, YARN, CSDs, and Parcels. DataRobot running on Cloudera Enterprise provides unmatched levels of performance, reliability, security, and ease-of-use that Fortune 500 clients demand.

“The integration of DataRobot and Hadoop will enable us to derive even higher value from our data lake on Cloudera,” said Matt Elson, executive vice president of partnerships, Evariant. “We anticipate far better efficiencies for our data science team, more accurate models, and a lower TCO due to this integration with Cloudera.”

Visit DataRobot at Strata + Hadoop World Booth #1309 – Showcasing the DataRobot platform at next weeks’ conference in San Jose, attendees can experience how the platform automates the use of open source machine learning algorithms to build optimized predictive models, with no math, coding, or guesswork required.
