Spark Development Company
Apache Spark is an open-source distributed general-purpose cluster-computing framework and handles both batches as well as real-time analytics and data processing workloads. Researchers were looking for a way to speed up processing jobs in Apache Hadoop systems.
It extends the model of MapReduce to efficiently use it for more types of computations, which includes interactive queries and stream processing. Spark provides native bindings for Java and Python programming languages. In addition, it includes several libraries to support build applications for machine learning, Spark Streaming, and graph processing. Spark Big data consists of Spark Core and a set of libraries. Spark Core is the heart of Apache Spark and it is responsible for providing distributed scheduling, task transmission and I/O functionality. The Spark Core engine uses the concept of an RDD as its basic data type.
