    Super news
    When do you integrate natively ML/HD inside connectors in Analytic Server ?

    • Hi Vallaud,

      Sorry that I did not see your question in the first place. I’m not quite understand what it referred to by “ML/DD in the connectors in Analytic Server”. Do you mean Machine Learning in Spark? Can you elaborate more of your question?

    In addition, do you have any document related with Analytic Server sizing?. How do you calculate the RAM, free space in DD for server with Analytic Server installation?

  3. Is the Hortonworks Hadoop 2.5 supported in this latest fix pack release?

    • Hi SL, HDP 2.5 is not supported in the latest release of AS 3.0.1. We are planning to have a fix pack release for AS 3.0.1 to add HDP 2.5 support, tentatively by end of March.
