In this two-part series, we will look at how Apache® Ignite™ and Apache® Spark™ can be used together. Ignite is a memory-centric distributed database, caching, and processing platform. It is designed for transactional, analytical, and streaming workloads, delivering in-memory performance at scale. Spark is a streaming and compute engine that typically ingests data from HDFS or other storage.…

In-memory computing is a journey that requires up-front planning and preparation to complete. Companies often start with caching to add speed and scale to existing applications. But before you know it, you're building new hybrid transactional/analytical processing (HTAP) applications, new streaming analytics applications, or even starting to implement machine and deep learning. If you don't…

In the previous article in this Machine Learning series, we looked at k-NN Classification with Apache® Ignite™. We’ll now look at another Machine Learning algorithm and conclude our series. In this article, we’ll look at K-Means Clustering using the Titanic dataset. Very conveniently, Kaggle provides the dataset in a CSV form. For our analysis, we are interested in two clusters: whether…
