Apache Spark 2.0 Is Now Available

Apache Software Foundation (ASF) recently announced the release of new version of Apache Spark, a popular open-source cluster computing framework. Apache Spark 2.0 offers a new streaming system, performance improvements, and API refinements to the data users.

The new Apache Spark is said to be easier on top and faster underneath. Project Tungsten, one of the most technologically ambitious additions, is a reworked Apache Spark’s treatment for memory and code generation. It includes features such as applying Tungsten’s memory management to both caching and runtime execution.

Spark 2.0 also comes with a major shift in APIs. DataFrames and Datasets, which were two different ways of accessing structured data previously, are now under the same hood.
