Hi Authors,

There are many distributed platforms or frameworks coming out when the cloud became hot. Do you have a suggestion on which one to choose? Have you ever tried Spark? It's said it has a better performance than Hadoop. And it supports Scala, which will make the program concise and easier with concurrency.

To be or not to be. It's a question.

There are many . and answer depends on the usecase ..

In general, for most (except for graph styles calculations) MapReduce model works well, and I believe it will hold for years.

When it come to MapReduce implementations, Hadoop is the defacto and most widely used.

I have not used Spark. But it is likely faster implementations will gain ground eventually. Hadoop can become faster too. Yes, I believe MapReduce implementations can be faster now.

Hi Srinath,

Firstly good luck with your book.

Can you explain what distributed platforms or frameworks are, what they offer and how would this book help us with them.

Thanks,

Igor
