Spark Summit East 2017

We’re excited to announce that our CTO and co-founder John Leach will be speaking at Spark Summit East 2017! John will be presenting, “Utilizing Spark As The Analytical Core To An Open Source HTAP Relational Database On HBase,” on the final day of the conference, February 9 at 3:20pm in Ballroom A.

This presentation will walk through how a dual engine architecture can exist where Apache® Sparkä supports analytical queries and large database maintenance operations (HBase Compactions, Index Maintenance, imports) while an operational relational architecture mirrors the analytical architecture. The presenters will demonstrate how to maintain ACID properties during both real-time and Spark analytical read/write operations.

In addition, the talk will explain how advanced RDBMS topics like constraints, foreign keys, triggers, and secondary indexes can still occur using Spark’s dataset interface and what use cases are enabled by fusing ACID properties with large scale elastic compute.

If you are interested in attending the conference and seeing John’s presentation make sure to register ASAP!


About Spark Summit East 2017

The Spark Summit is an event to bring the Apache Spark community together. You will hear from leading production users of Spark, SparkSQL, Spark Streaming and related projects, as well as finding out where project development is going and learning how to use the Spark stack in a variety of applications.

Apache Spark is a powerful open source processing engine built around speed, ease of use, and sophisticated analytics. It was started at UC Berkeley in 2009 and is now developed at the vendor-independent Apache Software Foundation. Since its release, Spark has seen rapid adoption by enterprises across a wide range of industries. Internet powerhouses such as Yahoo, eBay and Netflix have deployed Spark at massive scale, processing multiple petabytes of data on clusters of over 8,000 nodes. Apache Spark has also become the largest open source community in big data, with over 1000 contributors from 250+ organizations.
