A couple of months ago, one of my partners sent me a link to an interesting blog post by Cloudera Board Chairman and Chief Strategy Officer, Mike Olson. Olson's article had to do with the emergence of Apache Spark as the preferred analytics development platform for Hadoop.

Olson opines, “What the Hadoop ecosystem needs is a successor system that is more powerful, more flexible and more real-time than MapReduce. While not every current (or maybe even future) application will abandon the MapReduce framework of today, new applications could use such a general-purpose engine to be faster and to do more than is possible with MapReduce. Enter Spark.”
