Hadoop for the Data Scientist: Spark in Cloudera 5.5
With its popularity, development ease, and flexibility, Apache Spark has quickly emerged as an open standard in the Hadoop ecosystem and primed to become the next general processing layer for Hadoop. Cloudera recognized Spark’s potential early and has led the development effort to unite Spark and Hadoop into a cohesive, enterprise-grade platform. Cloudera has helped hundreds of customers get success with Spark and, with the release of Cloudera 5.5, we are further expanding the use cases and capabilities of Spark as part of a production platform. We have also worked closely with partners and customers, such as Capital One, to further enable data science use cases with Spark.
