Shared Memory Layer and Faster SQL for Spark Applications – Dmitriy Setrakyan
In this presentation we will talk about the need to share state in memory across different Spark jobs or applications and Apache Ignite as the technology that makes it possible. We will dive into importance of In Memory File Systems, Shared In-Memory RDDs with Apache Ignite, as well as the need to index data in-memory for fast SQL execution. We will also present a hands on demo demonstrating advantages and disadvantages of one approach over another. We will also discuss requirements of storing data off-heap in order to achieve large horizontal and vertical scale of the applications using Spark and Ignite.
