WhITE PAPER - Get Smart, Get Reactive!

Big Data Applications  Getting Started with Spark

By Dean Wampler, PhD

If you are exploring Big Data and wondering if Spark is right for your Reactive application, this white paper is for you. It provides an insightful overview of new trends in Big Data and includes handy diagrams of representative architectures, such as:

  • Hadoop with MapReduce and Spark

  • Event streaming Reactive applications built with the Typesafe Reactive Platform

  • Streaming data with a combination of Akka and Spark

Because Spark is implemented in Scala and leverages Akka, it presents a logically consistent extension to the T ypesafe Reactive Platform .  Take a closer look to see if Spark and Typesafe are the right combination for your Big Data application.
