Additional Information

Data is everywhere and it is growing! The growth of data volume has led to many challenges when it comes to processing it. People encounter problems with low CPU/Memory whenever they have tried to analyze unmanageable amount of data. Coupled with the fact, that the time needed for the processing is very high. Let's face it - waiting forever for a job to complete or starting it all over again, if it fails, is never fun. Enter Spark, a high-performance distributed computing framework, allows us to tackle big-data problems by distributing the workload across a cluster of machines, making those workflows painless.

This webinar is a part of the CSC's big data series. We will discuss briefly about Spark, and how to deploy it on CSC's infrastructure.

Prerequisities: The webinar is for everyone interested in the subject.
