Big Data Analytic Topic - Cloudera presentation on SPARK

Cloudera will be presenting "Spark" at this event. Join us to hear from Cloudera Expert Rob Ryan and Cloudera engineer - Ben White/

What is Spark?

Apache Spark is an open source, parallel data processing framework that complements Apache Hadoop to make it easy to develop fast, unified Big Data applications combining batch, streaming, and interactive analytics on all your data. In collaboration with Databricks – the company leading the development of Spark – Cloudera offers commercial support for Spark with Cloudera Enterprise. Fast, Powerful Data Processing

For analysts and data scientists who rely on iterative algorithms (e.g. clustering/classification), Spark is[masked]x faster than MapReduce delivering faster time to insight on more data, resulting in better business decisions and user outcomes.

    I really enjoyed the session and looking forward to more. I don't have much background on big data, and this session definitely helped me understand the basic concepts and provided some insights into the technologies involved.

      Both cloudera and hortonsworks have sandbox or vm to download , you can play with it without much knowledge on Hadoop . Big data not only Hadoop , also include lots of no SQL products, you can also take look on cassandra , mongodb and solr, all these are very popular.

    Man! I would have loved to have made it, work ended up putting me too far away to make it due to traffic. I also wanted to remind everyone here that you are welcome to join us at the Big Data Camp LA we are currently planning. It will be June[masked] at Direct TV. If you feel like helping to put the event together or have a great speaker who would be in presenting, feel free to drop me a note.
