GridGain works seamlessly with Hadoop. The GridGain Accelerator for Hadoop can reduce MapReduce and HIVE jobs by 10x in ten minutes.
If you are using Apache Spark with Hadoop, GridGain is a powerful complement to Spark. When used with GridGain, Spark queries can run much faster because GridGain indexes the Spark RDDs so Spark queries do not require a full scan of the data. GridGain also makes the Spark RDDs mutable so you can share state between Spark applications and jobs.
