GoDataDriven is thrilled to announce that Databricks has selected them as exclusive Spark training partner in the Benelux region.
Databricks and Apache Spark
Apache Spark is a powerful open source processing engine built around speed, ease of use, and sophisticated analytics. Since its release, Spark has seen rapid adoption by enterprises across a wide range of industries. Internet powerhouses such as Yahoo, Baidu, and Tencent, have eagerly deployed Spark at massive scale, collectively processing multiple petabytes of data on clusters of over 8,000 nodes. It has quickly become the largest open source community in big data, with over 1000 contributors from 200+ organizations.
Databricks was founded by the team that created and continues to drive Apache Spark, a powerful open source data processing engine built for sophisticated analytics, ease of use, and speed. The company has trained over 20,000 users on Apache Spark, and has the largest number of customers deploying Spark to date.
Databricks offers a cloud-based data platform that makes implementing, and using, Spark easy.
