Scaling TB's of data with Apache Spark and Scala DSL at Production

Apache Spark is one of the top big-data processing platforms and has driven the adoption of Scala in many industry and academic settings. As entire Apache Spark framework has been written in Scala as a base, it’s real pleasure to understand beauty of functional Scala DSL with Spark.

This talk is intent to present :

  • Primary data structures (RDD, DataSet, Dataframe) usage in universal large scale data processing with Hbase (Data lake), Hive (Analytical Engine).
  • Case study: We will go through importance of physical data split up techniques such as coalesce, Partition, Repartition and other important spark internals in Scaling TB’s of data / ~17 billions records
  • Also, We will understand crucial part and very interesting way of understanding parallel & concurrent distributed data processing – tuning memory, cache, Disk I/O, Leaking memory, Internal shuffle, spark executor, spark driver etc.
