Join Progress DataDirect in San Francisco for Spark Summit 2015.

Progress® DataDirect® is, and always has been, at the leading edge of data connectivity and integration technology. Maintaining this leadership position means continually expanding our support for relational and nonrelational Big Data NoSQL and SQL data sources and connectivity standards. Recently, that meant bringing DataDirect ODBC and JDBC connectivity to Apache Spark through the Spark SQL module. This week, we are taking our connectivity solutions on the road when we head to Spark Summit 2015 in San Francisco.

Spark gives you more than high-speed data access

Apache Hadoop is by far the leading Big Data  platform and supports a multitude of data solutions, including Apache Spark. Spark offers significant improvements over other solutions by providing a uniform API for workflows over diverse data systems and runtimes. It's easy to use and can run everywhere, on Hadoop, standalone or in the cloud. It can access diverse data sources including Apache Hive, HDFS, Cassandra, HBase and Amazon S3. But the biggest advantage of Spark is its speed—Spark is up to 100 times faster than Hadoop Map Reduce in memory and 10 times faster on disk. All of these advantages can then be leveraged with standard SQL queries through the included Spark SQL module and Progress DataDirect for Spark SQL.
