Application Description

Skytree Server is an enterprise-grade software platform for developing, testing, and deploying advanced analytics solutions for big data. It is designed from the ground up to work on massive, fast changing, and varied datasets with high degree of efficiency and accuracy. Skytree Server’s scalable architecture performs state-of-the-art machine learning methods that were previously not possible on very large data sets. The fundamental design of Skytree Server incorporates advanced algorithms from the latest machine learning research to achieve speeds that are tens of thousands of times faster than existing approaches.


Skytree Server runs as a regular Hadoop MapReduce job where the mappers are trivial, and the reducers are complex and execute Skytree Server child processes. Skytree Server does not follow the MapReduce programming paradigm, but still runs as a MapReduce job: It gets scheduled by the JobTracker, and then TaskTrackers launch reducer (Skytree Server) processes that use data nodes as compute nodes to perform machine learning.

Skytree Server requires only the MapReduce framework and the NFS API to be operational, therefor any MapR editions (M3, M5 or M7) may be used. For Skytree Server to run on MapR cluster, few basic requirements are needed:

  • Identification of a set of cluster nodes to use as compute nodes for Skytree Server. - Skytree Server installed on all compute nodes. - Working MapReduce framework on all compute nodes. - NFS Gateway service running on all compute nodes. - User-writeable MapR volume NFS-mounted on all compute nodes.
