Fad? No, containers are here to stay

David Linthicum

Dig into the the red-hot open source framework in InfoWorld's beginner's guide to Docker. They're also much more efficient for creating workload bundles that are transportable from cloud to cloud. You probably already assumed this, but RightScale's new State of the Cloud report confirms that containers -- exemplified by Docker and CoreOS -- are undergoing rapid growth. Indeed, I see the same trend in my research.

Overview of how Apache Spark fits in the Apache Hadoop ecosystem


But now thanks to the contributions of a wide team of open source developers and leaders, the consensus is becoming clear (especially among enterprise CTOs), Spark is better as part of a more comprehensive framework. Success in these domains requires Spark to work with most all the other components of the Apache Hadoop ecosystem to provide reliable pipelines to collect, transport, process and serve, as well as store, backup and conduct traditional analysis over, all data holdings.
