Yesterday, at a spectacular event held at the Galvanized offices in Downtown San Francisco, IBM announced they will invest $300 million to promote and develop Spark, a modern and powerful framework for Big Data computation.
Tupl was selected by IBM as one of the high-tech start-ups that have successfully adopted Spark to effectively address a business need. We showcased our Automatic Network Troubleshooting use case, and delivered a Lightning Talk explaining our Journey towards adopting Spark as one of the key components of our TuplOS framework – a decision that is being proven right as we see more and more adoption from major companies such as eBay, Yahoo, Amazon and Netflix.
There is a growing realization within the tech community that tools such as Hadoop, and in this case Spark, don’t solve any problem by themselves. Data without knowledge is useless – the key to success is the combination of very specialized knowledge in one space, together with the adoption of the right technology choices. This is what Tupl is about.
