Apache Spark and massively parallel processing (MPP) analytical databases are designed for different things. The first generation of “big data” architectures relied upon the distributed Hadoop and MapReduce framework for analytical processing. This framework provided a breakthrough in that it increased the amount of data that could be processed, but it operated in batch mode which limited its applicability for interactive analyses. Spark removed the batch processing limitation of MapReduce thus making interactive analyses on big data practical. It also provided capabilities for streaming analyses and machine learning, but it does not include its own persistent storage layer.
