Apache Spark is a fast and general engine for big data processing, with built-in modules for streaming, SQL, machine learning and graph processing.

Apache Spark™ is a fast and general engine for large-scale data processing. Spark has an advanced DAG execution engine that supports cyclic data flow and in-memory computing. Spark has over 80 high-level operators that make it easy to build parallel apps, and you can use it interactively from Scala and Python shells. Spark powers a stack of high-level tools including Spark SQL, MLlib for machine learning, GraphX, and Spark Streaming. You can combine these libraries seamlessly in the same application. Spark runs on Hadoop, Mesos, standalone, or in the cloud. It can access diverse data sources including HDFS, Cassandra, HBase, S3. You can run Spark readily using its standalone cluster mode, on EC2, or run it on Hadoop YARN or Apache Mesos. It can read from HDFS, HBase and S3, Cassandra, and any Hadoop data source.
