Apache® Spark™ is the open-source, in-memory computing framework for distributed data processing. One of the nicest things about this technology is that it features a simple programming model that hides the complexity inherent to distributed computing. As an added bonus, the APIs come in multiple flavors: Scala, Java, Python, and R. Added integration with SWIFT Object Storage, Cloudant, Db2 Warehouse on Cloud (formerly dashDB), SQLDB and other IBM Cloud Data Services makes development and analytics with Apache Spark more accessible, centralized and useful.
