By accessing those analytics clusters of machines, data analysts and data scientists can quickly evaluate more hypotheses and scenarios in parallel and cost-effectively.

    The number of analytical tools which is supported on various clouds is increasing by the day. The list of analytical tools spans from traditional rdms databases as provided by vendors to analytics open sources projects such as Hadoop Hive, Spark, H2O. Next to provisioning tools and solutions on the cloud, managed services for Data Science, Big Data and Analytics are becoming a popular offering of many clouds.
