http://bit.ly/1BTaXZP – As organizations look for even faster ways to derive value from big data, they are turning to Apache Spark is an in-memory processing framework that offers lightning-fast big data analytics, providing speed, developer productivity, and real-time processing advantages. The Spark software stack includes a core data-processing engine, an interface for interactive querying, Spark Streaming 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. By the end of the session, you’ll come away with a deeper understanding of how you can unlock deeper insights from your data, faster, with Spark.
