What advice do you have for others considering Apache Spark?


If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Apache Spark, what would you say?

How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?

I would say for some use case we don't have to go to Apache spark and it can be implemented using ordinary python,go or Java application. For some use cases if leveraging the usage of Apache Spark gives better performance and reduction of time we can go for Apache Spark. I would rate Apache spark 9 out of 10 for use cases that require it. I would advice using already cloud services for implementing Apache Spark.

The advice that I would give to someone considering this solution is that the quality of data has key streaming capabilities like velocity. This means how quickly you are going to refer to the data. These things matter by designing the solution. We need to take these things out. I would rate Apache Spark an eight out of ten. To make it a ten they should improve the speed. The data storage capacity means we can inject somewhere in the user database in more efficient ways.

I would rate it a nine out of ten.

On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd put it at an eight. To make it a perfect 10 I'd like to see an improved configuration bot. Sometimes it is a nightmare on Linux trying to figure out what happened on the configuration and back-end. So I think installation and configuration with some other tools. We are technical people, we could figure it out, but if aspects like that were improved then other people who are less technical would use it and it would be more adaptable to the end-user.

We use both on-premises and public and private cloud deployment models. We're partners with Databricks. I'm a consultant. Our company works for large enterprises such as banks and energy companies. 17 of our workers use Apache Spark. With the cloud, there are many companies that integrate Spark. Most projects in big data around the world use Spark, indirectly or directly. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

The work that we are doing with this solution is quite common and is very easy to do. My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to look at their needs and then look at the community. Normally, there are a lot of people who have already done what you need. So, even without experience, it is quite simple to do a lot of things. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

I would recommend the solution. I would rate it an eight or nine out of 10. For some areas, I would give it ten but I cannot use some parts. If you are going to use it for a consumer then I would be able to recommend it and you should go ahead. It doesn't work for me as I have different clients and different engagements.
