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 lighting fast results, and how it complements Apache Hadoop.
Jim Scott (Chicago HUG) will be guiding this talk but I encourage members of the STL community that have used Spark to bring their experiences and comments.
As always, we will have food and beer.
