Accelerating Apache Spark-based Analytics on Intel Architecture

Slides PDF Video

To find new trends and strong patterns from large complex data sets, a strong analytics foundation is needed. Intel is working closely with Databricks, AMPLab, Spark community and its ecosystem to advance these analytics capabilities for Spark on Intel® architecture platforms and to accelerate the development of the Spark-based applications. Intel Architecture offers advanced silicon acceleration & built-in security technologies. By building on this trusted foundation and extending & optimizing the rich capabilities of Spark, we are accelerating the speed by which our customers derive real-time analytics insights and deliver meaningful solutions.
