>> >> === Inexperience with Open Source ===

>> >>
>> >>
>> >> === Relationship with Other Apache Products ===
>> >> Spark inter-operates with several existing Apache products by
>>supporting
>> >> them as storage layers: Apache Cassandra, Apache HBase, and Apache
>> Hadoop
>> >> (HDFS). It also uses several Apache components internally including
>> Apache

>>Apace
>> >> Gora so we expect alignment and cross pollination between our
>>efforts).
>> >>
>> >> Spark offers an alternative computation engine to Apache Hadoop
>> >> (MapReduce). Unlike MapReduce, Spark is designed for lower-latency
>>and
>> >> interactive workloads. This makes the projects complimentary: many

>> >> run MapReduce and Spark side-by-side.
>> >>
>> >> === A Excessive Fascination with the Apache Brand ===
>> >> Spark is already a healthy and relatively well known open source
>> project.
