Foster City, CA
Wednesday, May 28, 2014

The Real-time Big Data meetup is for everyone interested in real-time access to big data including developers, data scientists, and analysts.  The Apache Spark Tour is bringing MapR experts to 10 cities over the next 3 months to talk about Spark and how you can run programs 10-100x faster on Hadoop.



Hey Hadoop, meet Apache Spark!

David Tucker View Bio


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.
