Continuum Analytics Anaconda® with Numba Acceleration

Tools

Anaconda is the modern open source analytics platform powered by Python. Continuum Analytics is the driving force behind Anaconda. Anaconda includes high performance capabilities including acceleration for HSA APU and Boltzmann enabled discrete GPUs via Numba. Anaconda gives superpowers to the people who are changing the world.

Numba

Numba gives you the power to speed up your applications with high performance functions written directly in Python. With a few annotations, array-oriented and math-heavy Python code can be just-in-time compiled to native machine instructions, similar in performance to C, C++ and Fortran, without having to switch languages or Python interpreters.

Numba works by generating optimized machine code using the LLVM compiler infrastructure at import time, runtime, or statically (using the included pycc tool). Numba supports compilation of Python to run on either CPU or GPU hardware, and is designed to integrate with the Python scientific software stack.
