ClearStory Data Epitomizes Strength of Apache Spark for Fast-Cycle

Multi-Source Analysis at Spark Summit 2014

ClearStory’s Native Integration of Apache Spark Continues to Advance Speed of Disparate Data Analysis,
Harmonizing Internal and External Data

MENLO PARK, CA. — June 30, 2014 — ClearStory Data, the company that’s bringing Data Intelligence to everyone, invites you to Spark Summit 2014 to learn more about how multi-source analysis is dramatically faster with Apache Spark-based solutions like ClearStory Data.

ClearStory’s solution has been natively integrated Apache Spark from the start, recognizing the advantages of Apache Spark while it was still just a project in Berkeley’s AMPLab. The recent release of Spark 1.0 is further evidence that developments in Spark will accelerate large-scale diverse data analysis. ClearStory’s participation and sponsorship of the Spark Summit offers attendees an opportunity to hear from the leading users of Spark about where it’s heading and how to use Spark in a variety of applications.

“Spark 1.0 is a fantastic milestone for Apache Spark developers and the community in general, and our several-year investment in Apache Spark is evidence of its strength for fast processing of data at scale,” said Vaibhav Nivargi, Technical Co-founder of ClearStory Data. “Spark 1.0 marks an important stage in its evolution, making imperative advancements for fast in-memory processing, especially given the increased urgency for enterprises to do fast analysis and discovery across diverse data.”

“For the promise of big data to be realized, data processing needs the right framework to finally make diagnosis and discovery with large and numerous data sets easy,” said Ion Stoica, CEO and Co-founder of Databricks, the company founded by the creators of Apache Spark and leading Spark developments. “The ClearStory Data platform is built natively on Spark in order to attain raw speed for data harmonization at scale, empowering companies to interact and explore data at speeds previously not possible.”
