Apache Spark

On this page we explore Apache Spark, including its main benefits and how IOMETE leverages this powerful engine.
Note: An extensive version of the information below can be found on the website of the Apache Spark organization.

What is Apache Spark?

Apache Spark™ is a multi-language engine for executing data engineering, data science, and machine learning on single-node machines or clusters.

Open Standard

Apache Spark has been designed and developed to be an open community standard to ensure compatibility across languages and implementations. Apache Spark is the most widely-used engine for scalable computing. Thousands of companies, including 80% of the Fortune 500, use Apache Spark™. Over 2,000 contributors to the open source project from industry and academia.
