Anaconda's Python-based analytics hit the enterprise with new subscription plans

Also on the Python front, Teradata targets DevOps with a new module of its own

Continuum Analytics' free Anaconda software has long been known for its Python-powered analytics capabilities, but on Monday the company unveiled a new offering designed specifically for enterprises.

Launched at Strata + Hadoop World in New York, the enterprise version of Anaconda is designed to enable corporate data science teams and in-house developers to explore and solve complex data problems in a packaged, easy-to-deploy, open data science stack.

The software offers easy GPU and multicore integration, Continuum said, along with scalable browser-based visualization via data shading. Also included is a framework that insulates the organization from back-end changes and allows users to write data and analytic queries once and then deploy them anywhere.

The open version of Anaconda is now freely available under the BSD license, allowing it to be fully redistributed without attribution. For organizational users, paid versions are available in three subscription tiers: Pro, Workgroup and Enterprise, beginning at $10,000 per year for up to 10 users with support and indemnification.

Included in Anaconda subscriptions are exploration and visualization features, notebook publishing and sharing, full cluster support, integration with Spark and Hadoop, and scalable, real-time big data visualization.

Anaconda's customers include more than 200 of the Fortune 500, 19 of the Fortune 25 and 8,000 universities around the world, Continuum says, including Boeing, Procter & Gamble, Pepsi, Schlumberger, the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Anaconda Cloud, meanwhile, offers a free, publicly available Web portal for the Anaconda Community to share notebooks, packages and reproducible environments. It also includes a download for cluster prototyping of analytics that scale to big data. Private plans on Anaconda Cloud cost $9 per month.

In other Python news, Teradata on Monday announced the new, open-source Teradata Module for Python, which aims to help software developers create DevOps-enabled applications that leverage data in the Teradata warehouse. The release makes Teradata the first vendor to extend DevOps practices to the multi-application data warehouse environment, it said.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
