Spark the Open Source Future of Big Data

Spark is an open source cluster computing system that aims to make data analytics fast — both fast to run and fast to write.

To run programs faster, Spark provides primitives for in-memory cluster computing: your job can load data into memory and query it repeatedly much more quickly than with disk-based systems like Hadoop MapReduce.

To make programming faster, Spark provides clean, concise APIs in Scala, Java and Python. You can also use Spark interactively from the Scala and Python shells to rapidly query big datasets

Spark is open source under a BSD license, so download it to check it out.
