Riak is excited to continue to be part of the premier big data event for the Apache® Spark™ Community by participating at the upcoming Spark Summit being held between October 25-27th. Thousands of developers, scientists, analysts, researchers, and executives have attended the Databricks organized series of events and we’re looking forward to seeing everyone at the Square Brussels for the European leg of the tour.
At the Spark Summit, Riak will be highlighting our recently launched Riak Apache Spark Connector. Riak users now have an immediate integrated, scalable solution for powerful and fast Big Data analytics while Spark users now the ability to simply utilize a resilient, highly available datastore. It brings the full power of Apache Spark to the operational data, managed in Riak distributed clusters. Apache Spark and Riak have common design principles: high performance, scalability, resiliency and operational simplicity.
John Musser, our Vice President of Engineering, is out from Seattle and will be presenting “Lessons Learned Optimized NoSQL for Apache Spark” at the Summit on Wednesday 26th at 12.10 in the Silver Hall. Not able to attend? Sign up for our blog updates (you can do this by scrolling down to the bottom of this page and a pop-up will ask you for your details) and we’ll let you know when his slides are available.
If you would like to get more familiar with our Apache Spark integration, we recently published a blog explaining our approach titled The Quest for Hidden Treasure and more recently a post on our most recent release Riak’s Spark-Riak Connector 1.6.0. We have also published a notebook tutorial on Databrick.com.
So drop by Booth #P6 and say hi to the Riak team. We have our Scalextric demo on hand and the fastest lap will win! Ask me for some treasure and I’ll find someone to talk your ear off about Riak and the Spark Connector while grabbing yourself a sticker or two.
