Event Details

Spark is an up-and-coming distributed computing platform in Big Data and it has a lot of momentum going for it. The venerable platform for Big Data is Apache Hadoop -- deployed widely and can scale to Petabyte data sizes. So can the new-comer Spark be a viable replacement for Hadoop? Should you skip Hadoop and go to Spark?

In this talk, I will walk you through a case study of moving from Hadoop to Spark. We will compare Hadoop and Spark side by side and highlight their strong points and advantages. And I will present a balanced assessment on which platform might be better for particular needs.
