The reason people are so interested in Apache Spark is it puts the power of Hadoop in the hands of developers. It is easier to setup an Apache Spark cluster than an Hadoop Cluster. It runs faster. And it is a lot easier to program. It puts the promise and power of Big Data and real time analysis in the hands of the masses. With that in mind, let's introduce Apache Spark in this quick tutorial.

Apache Spark is a great backbone to do high-speed calculations in parallel to feed data into your MIcroservices where it can be used to make just-in time decisions. Apache Spark, QBit Microservices Lib and Cassandra make an awesome combination for real-time analysis, high-speed microservices and scalable reliable data store.
