RHIPE in the SD Times

October 12, 2010

Saptarshi Guha, who we profiled yesterday, is at the Hadoop World conference in New York City today. At 4PM, Saptarshi will give a presentation on RHIPE, his link between R and Hadoop. Saptarashi was interviewed yesterday by Alex Handy of the SD Times, where he talked about his background and his motivation to create RHIPE

Saptarshi was sponsored by Revolution Analytics to improve RHIPE and to present at Hadoop World, and we're pleased to announce that he will be working closely with the Revolution team on projects involving Hadoop and R. From the interview:

Mike Minelli, VP of sales at Revolution Analytics, said that Hadoop will now be a focus for R. “[Guha] is now working with us closely. We hired him because Revolution Analytics will be working to basically marry up Hadoop and ScaleR, which is a component that makes R scream as far as speed and the ability to handle large sets of data.
