Advantages of Using a Managed Spark Service:
Automated Cluster ManagementManaged deployment, logging, and monitoring according to the needs of your particular job let you focus on your data, instead of focusing on the cluster. Your clusters will be stable, scalable, and fast..
Resizable ClustersBuilding and configuring Spark clusters is resource-intensive, however this is no longer of your concer as clusters can be created and scaled quickly. nodes are wind down when they’re no longer needed. Everything is done on an as-needed basis
Developer ToolsUsually there are provided multiple ways to manage a cluster.
Automatic or Manual ConfigurationHardware and software on clusters is automatically configured for you while also allowing for manual control.
Simplicity of ManagementYou will no longer have to stress out on managing the cluster or resource allocation and make any prioritisation through tools such as YARN resource manager.
Cost EffectiveUsers only pay for the compute resources that are consumed during the process.
