In fact, the same thing might be happening with Spark, at least an engine for the types of workloads that Hadoop was not so skilled at tackling. The next big platform push from a range of companies will be around machine learning. Tuning and optimizing the hardware and software stack, cobbling it together with other core open source pieces (including Spark) and rolling it out in a nice, neat vertically integrated package. We are seeing this happening in the open source machine learning software stack for certain with…
