IBM Introduces Platform Conductor for Spark
Apache Spark is an open-source cluster computing framework for managing big data infrastructures that often leverage OpenStack Swift object stores. But organizations managing large clusters of compute and storage resources for multiple projects are finding themselves faced with challenges, such as performance and cost, that Swift by itself was not designed to handle. That is why IBM has introduced IBM Platform Conductor for Spark, a software offering whose capabilities help enterprises meet those challenges.
But before we get into IBM Platform Conductor for Spark, we need some context, including understanding that the new data-driven world where analytics shines is different from the older application driven IT world. Apache Spark is one of the new technologies that can make the data-driven world work efficiently and effectively, which is why IBM has made a major commitment to it.
