OpenShift Commons Big Data SIG #3: Building Cloud Native Apache Spark Applications with OpenShift
January 17, 2017 | by
OpenShift Commons Big Data SIG
In this Big Data SIG talk, Red Hat's Mike McCune gives an excellent introduction to Big Data and building Apache Spark applications on OpenShift, Red Hat's Enterprise-ready Kubernetes for developers.
Apache Spark based applications are often comprised of many separate, interconnected components that are a good match for an orchestrated containerized platform like OpenShift which is built on Kubernetes. But with the increased flexibility afforded by these technologies comes a new set of challenges for building rich data-centric applications. Mike starts off with how to build Apache Spark Application pipelines and then walks thru a demo of building one on OpenShift. He also gave some great insights into the road ahead for Apache Spark on OpenShift.
Don't forget to leave your feedback and suggestions for each video or in the comments section below. This will be incredibly important to shape this Special Interest Group and create sessions that fit the demands of all the OpenShift developers in the community.
