Native Distributed Analytics Architecture

What Does Native Distributed Analytics Architecture Mean?

Native Distributed Analytics Architecture (NDAA) is a type of in-database analytics. NDAA performs analytics on data when it is actually in the database. This removes the overhead of having to export data from the database, perform analytics and then reimport the data back into the database. NDAA uses clusters to distribute the analytics among high-performance computing clusters.


Techopedia Explains Native Distributed Analytics Architecture

Native Distributed Analytics
Architecture was developed by Statsoft’s Statistica, now owned by Dell. It uses distributed computing platforms such as
Hadoop to perform in-database analytics. Typically, businesses have to perform
analytics by exporting the data from the database for processing on another
system, before that has to be reimported back into the database. NDAA reduces
the overhead by performing the analytics in the database. This reduces the
overhead of extra storage space and network traffic. This makes NDAA
particularly attractive for internet of things applications.
