When we first started using Spark, we were twenty people. Twenty Stratians. We took a risk and adopted Spark very early on, but with a lot of teamwork and a lot of mistakes, we managed to create the first pure Spark platform.
Stratio has just added top-k queries support to its Lucene based implementation of the Cassandra’s secondary indexes. This implementation was originally designed to allow embedded full-text and multivariable search in Apache Cassandra.
Once the Data Sources API has been released, we’ve wanted to take advantage of these new features and, for this reason, we have developed a Spark-MongoDB library. With this new connector we help the growing MongoDB community to simplify the interaction with this datasource via Spark.
Stratio is delighted to announce that it is officially a Certified Spark Distribution. The certification is very important for us because we deeply believe that the certification program provides many benefits to the Spark community.
The Spark Summit 2014 took place earlier this month in San Francisco, and Stratio was there! More than 1.000 attendees have had the opportunity to find out what the news are in the most active open source project in the Hadoop ecosystem, and they were quite a few!
Stratio kicked off its first Apache Spark meetups earlier this month. Our friends and members of other groups on meetup joined in when we announced the group in Madrid.
