Edu-Videos | Learn All About Apache Spark (100x Faster than Hadoop MapReduce)

Apache Spark’s popularity as part of big data analytics solutions is exploding. Spark is an open-source data analytics cluster computing framework originally developed in the AMPLab at UC Berkeley. Spark fits into the Hadoop open-source community, building on top of the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). However, Spark promises performance up to 100 times faster than Hadoop MapReduce for certain applications…and that’s why you should care!

Spark’s in-memory cluster computing is very well suited to machine learning algorithms. These Videos will give you a nice introduction to Spark, how it’s being used in business and why you should care…Watch Spark Videos…
