Subject Re: Spark data frames integration merged

Thanks Denis. I watched your recent 2 webinars and they were very helpful.

I can definitely create a page explaining how (currently three) ignite shared-rdd caches are
shared across multiple spark streaming apps for data enrichment here at expedia, once the
solution is stabilized. We are not in production yet. I have enabled native persistence and
had some hiccups during our testing but is looking better today.

We are currently working to optimize the join between incremental data and shared-rdd dataframe
in spark as there are several spark Apps and the total memory is limited. This part does not
have much to do with Ignite but mostly spark optimization, I believe. We do load the entire
ignite-cache (~50GB each) into spark executors and the cache is trimmed based on the business
rules, daily.

We will keep in touch and thanks again for all the great work and help everyone.

As as side note, do you have a public article published or any other relevant material that
explains how Ignite is used at Expedia?

You would help the community out a lot if such information is referenced from this page:

Thank you and this is great news.

We currently use the Ignite cache as a Reference dataset RDD in Spark, convert it into a spark
DataFrame and then join this DF with the incoming-data DF. I hope we can change this 3 step
process to a single step with the Spark DF integration. If so, would index / affinitykeys
on the join columns help with performance? We currently do not have them defined on the Reference
dataset. Are there examples available joining ignite DF with Spark DF? Also, what is the best
way to get the latest executables with the IGNITE-3084 included? Thanks again.

   Thank you, guys.

   Val, thanks for all reviews, advices and patience.

   Anton, thanks for ignite wisdom you share with me.

   Looking forward for next issues :)

   P.S Happy New Year for all Ignite community!

Great news! We completed and merged first part of integration with
Spark data frames [1]. It contains implementation of Spark data
source which allows to use DataFrame API to query Ignite data, as
well as join it with other data frames originated from different

Next planned steps are the following:
- Implement custom execution strategy to avoid transferring data from
Ignite to Spark when possible [2]. This should give serious
performance improvement in cases when only Ignite tables participate
in a query.
- Implement ability to save a data frame into Ignite via
DataFrameWrite API [3].

Nikolay Izhikov, thanks for the contribution and for all the hard
