Attend this session to learn how to easily share state in-memory across multiple Spark jobs, either within the same application or between different Spark applications using an implementation of the Spark RDD abstraction provided in Apache Ignite. During the talk, attendees will learn in detail how IgniteRDD - an implementation of native Spark RDD and DataFrame APIs - shares the state of the RDD across other Spark jobs, applications and workers. Examples will show how IgniteRDD, with its advanced in-memory indexing capabilities, allows execution of SQL queries many times faster than native Spark RDDs or Data Frames. Session hashtag: #EUde9
