Like MapReduce, it also takes a set of instructions from an application written by a developer. MapReduce was generally coded from Java; Spark supports not only … More Few minutes guide to Understand the Significance of Apache Spark

Apache Spark

Apache Spark is a fast and general engine for large-scale data processing. Although Mapreduce is great for large scale data processing, it is not friendly for iterative algorithms or interactive analytic because the data have to be repeatedly loaded for each iteration or be materialized and replicated on the distributed file system between successive jobs. Apache Spark is designed … More Apache Spark
