Anaconda Inc., provider of a data science platform, is partnering with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to offer secure open-source Python and R tools and packages. By embedding and enabling Anaconda’s repository across OCI Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Services customers will have access to Anaconda services directly from within OCI without a separate enterprise license.
Together, Anaconda and Oracle are looking forward to bringing open-source innovation to the enterprise, helping apply ML and AI to the most important business and research initiatives.
“We are committed to helping enterprises secure their open-source pipelines through the ability to use Anaconda anywhere, and that includes inside the Oracle Cloud,” said Peter Wang, CEO and co-founder of Anaconda. “By combining Anaconda’s package dependency manager and curated open-source repository with OCI’s products, data scientists and developers can seamlessly collaborate using the open-source Python tools they know and trust—while helping meet enterprise IT governance requirements.”
Python has become the most popular programming language in the data science ecosystem, it is a widely-accessible language that facilitates a wide variety of programming-driven tasks. Because the velocity of innovation powered by the open-source community outpaces any single technology vendor, more and more organizations are adopting open-source Python for enterprise use.
“Oracle’s partnership to provide data scientists with seamless access to Anaconda not only delivers high-performance machine learning but also helps ensure strong enterprise governance and security,” said Elad Ziklik, vice president, AI services, Oracle. “With security built into the core OCI experience, plus the security of Anaconda’s curated repository, data scientists can use their favorite open-source tools to build, train, and deploy models.”
