Spark Summit 2013 brought the Apache Spark community together on December 2-3, 2013 at the Hotel Nikko in San Francisco. It featured production users of Spark, Shark, Spark Streaming and related projects.
You can launch Spark quite simply in minutes using Elastic Mesos. Add your AWS credentials and you get an Apache Mesos cluster running on EC2 in just a few clicks, with no added costs other than what Amazon AWS charges.
We will show a demo for how to launch a Mesos cluster and then deploy Spark. Then we’ll show a sample app based on PMML for importing predictive models from analytics frameworks such as R, SAS, SPSS, SAP, Microstrategy, etc. This is a popular practice in Finance, and shows a compelling area of Enterprise use cases for Spark adoption in industry.
