On June 11th, one of our sponsors – MapR – will have a special presentation from Dr. Sungwook Yoon. Please RSVP below. We will be meeting at the IHC building in Murray at 6:30 in the evening.
Hey Hadoop, meet Apache Spark!
Hadoop has been a huge success in the data world. It’s disrupted decades of data management practices and technologies by introducing a massively parallel processing framework. The community and the development of all the Open Source components pushed Hadoop to where it is now.
That’s why the Hadoop community is excited about Apache Spark. The Spark software stack includes a core data-proccessing engine, an interface for interactive querying, Sparkstreaming for streaming data analysis, and growing libraries for machine-learning and graph analysis. Spark is quickly establishing itself as a leading environment for doing fast, iterative in-memory and streaming analysis.
This talk will give an introduction the Spark stack, explain how Spark has lightning fast results, and how it complements Apache Hadoop!
