Wakari: Continuum In-Browser Data Analytics Environment
Continuum Analytics released Wakari, an easy-to-use, cloud-based, collaborative Python environment for analyzing, exploring and visualizing large data sets.
Continuum Analytics is a leading provider of Python-based data analytics solutions and services.
Continuum Wakari is hosted on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and gives users the ability to share analyses and results via IPython notebook, visualize with Matplotlib, easily switch between multiple versions of Python and its scientific libraries, and quickly collaborate on analyses without having to download data locally to their laptops or workstations. Users can share code and results as simple web URLs, from which other users can easily create their own copies to modify and explore.
Wakari builds on Continuum's Python distribution, Anaconda, which includes over 80 Python libraries and provides the ability to create customized Python environments.
