Tech giant Apple has acquired Tuplejump — a Hyderabad-based machine learning startup that helps companies to store, process and visualise big data with its unique software.

Apple CEO Tim Cook announced the company’s first development centre in Hyderabad to work on Apple Maps during his visit to the country.

Founded in 2013, Tuplejump’s two co-founders Rohit Rai and Satyaprakash Buddhavarapu have already joined Apple while third cofounder, Deepak Alur, joined Anaplan – a Cloud-based business modelling and planning platform for sales, operations and finance.

According to a Tech Crunch report, Apple is on a machine learning company buying spree and recently bought two well-known startups Perceptio and Turi.

Apple was particularly interested in “FiloDB” — an opensource project that Tuplejump was building to efficiently apply machine learning concepts and analytics to complex data.

The Tuplejump team was well acquainted with open source big data tools such as the Apache Spark processing engine, the Apache Cassandra NoSQL database, and the Apache Kafka distributed high-throughput publish-subscribe messaging system.

Tuplejump’s website has been shut down following the acquisition, the details of which are yet to be disclosed and also built an open source search indexing system called Stargate that works with data stored in Cassandra and relies on the fundamentals of the Apache Lucene full-text search software.
