From Hadoop to Spark – Webinar

Spark is an up-and-coming distributed computing platform in Big Data and it has a lot of momentum going for it. The venerable platform for Big Data is Apache Hadoop — deployed widely and scalable to Petabyte data sizes.
So can the new-comer Spark be a viable replacement for Hadoop? Should you skip Hadoop and go to Spark?
from-Hadoop-to-SparkIn this talk, the presenter will walk you through a case study of moving from Hadoop to Spark. We will compare Hadoop and Spark side by side and highlight their strong points and disadvantages. And present a balanced assessment of which platform might be better for specific needs.
