In this tutorial, we will be installing Anaconda Python on one of our fully managed CentOS 7 Cloud VPSes.
Anaconda Python is an open-source programming language based on a Python distribution that is specifically developed for scientific computing and large amounts of data processing. The Anaconda library has over 200 packages ready out-of-the-box and over 2000 downloadable packages, all of which enable developers and enthusiasts to better develop their data science related applications almost instantly. Also, Anaconda package ships with Conda, a command-line tool and the package manager for Anaconda, which provides management of libraries, dependencies, and different environments.
Here are some of Anaconda’s capabilities in terms of scientific computing and a wide range of data processing:
- Data Science
- Machine Learning
- Artificial Intelligence
- Data Analytics
- Neural Networks
- Graphical Representation
Anaconda is developed and maintained by Anaconda, Inc. under the new BSD license and is written using Python.
