Spark now in CDH, HDP and MapR

I’m an Apache Spark enthusiast. I follow it with great interest and advise DataBricks (the startup formed by Spark’s creators). This week Hortonworks became the third Hadoop distribution company to announce Spark support via a tech preview in HDP2.1.

This makes a clean sweep of the distributions from dedicated Hadoop companies. Both Cloudera and MapR have previously announced full Apache Spark support in partnership with DataBricks .

Add the fact that Spark is widely used on AWS as well and it is clear that Spark is developing some impressive momentum.
