I came across this PR published today June 1st 2017 MapR Optimizes MapR-DB with Deep Apache Spark Integrations.
These are a couple highlights:
- The Native Spark Connector now includes support for data frames and dataset APIs for tight integration between Apache Spark and MapR-DB.
- HBase and MapR-DB binary tables can be queried directly with Spark, removing typical intermediary layers with other solutions.
- MapR-DB can be used as a data source and as a data destination for Spark jobs.
It will be good that members of the community share their experience with MapR-DB and Spark integration. Let's start a discussion!
