Sure, Spark is fast, but it also gives developers a positive experience they won’t soon forget.
Apache Spark is well known today for its performance benefits over MapReduce, as well as its versatility. However, another important benefit – the elegance of the development experience – gets less mainstream attention.
In this post, you’ll learn just a few of the features in Spark that make development purely a pleasure.
Spark is a compelling multi-purpose platform for use cases that span investigative, as well as operational, analytics.
Data science is a broad church. I am a data scientist — or so I’ve been told — but what I do is actually quite different from what other “data scientists” do. For example, there are those practicing “investigative analytics” and those implementing “operational analytics.” (I’m in the second camp.)
Data scientists performing investigative analytics use interactive statistical environments like R to perform ad-hoc,
Cloudera is announcing the general availability of support for Spark, bringing interactive machine learning and stream processing to enterprise data hubs.
Cloudera is pleased to announce the immediate availability of its first release of Apache Spark for Cloudera Enterprise (comprising CDH and Cloudera Manager).
Spark was created and contributed to the Apache Software Foundation by UC Berkeley, and it has quickly gained adoption for machine learning,
Welcome to our sixth edition of “This Month in the Ecosystem,” a digest of highlights from December 2013 (never intended to be comprehensive; for completeness, see the excellent Hadoop Weekly).
With the close of 2013, we also thought it appropriate to include some high points from across the year (not listed in any particular order):
The team behind Hue, the open source Web UI that makes Apache Hadoop easier to use, strikes again with a new Spark app.

Hi Spark Makers!
A Hue application for Apache Spark (incubating) was recently created. It lets users execute and monitor Spark jobs directly from their browser and be more productive.
