Spark, an alternative for fast data analytics

Spark is an open source cluster computing environment similar to Hadoop, but it has some useful differences that make it superior in certain workloads—namely, Spark enables in-memory distributed datasets that optimize iterative workloads in addition to interactive queries.Spark is implemented in the Scala language and uses Scala as its application framework. Unlike Hadoop, Spark and Scala create a tight integration, where Scala can easily manipulate distributed datasets as locally collective objects. For more information, Refer to the URL given below.
