Guest of the Week (8/19)
Michael Armbrust, Lead Developer of Spark SQL, Databricks
Congratulations Michael! You are theCUBE Guest of the Week.
Databricks, Inc. is bringing Apache Spark to the enterprise, and Michael Armbrust, lead developer of Spark SQL at Databricks, created Spark SQL’s Catalyst Optimizer, a query API that is a fundamental piece of Spark. The Catalyst Optimizer enables much of the functionality in Spark and supports Databricks’ new DataFrame API that makes Big Data processing accessible and simple for a wider range of users.
Armbrust joined George Gilbert, host of theCUBE, from the SiliconANGLE Media team, for two segments at Innovation Day at Databricks in San Francisco, CA, to discuss the Catalyst API and how it supports the new DataFrame API, as well as database integration scenarios. Armbrust is theCUBE’s Guest of the Week.
