Headed to New York City next week for Spark Summit East? We are too, and we’re excited to learn from and talk with the Spark community about their big data analytics needs, successes and pain points. Between the training on Tuesday and a packed schedule of case studies, smaller training and best practice sessions on Wednesday and Thursday, we’re getting our calendars ready for an educational and fun event.

One theme we’re seeing this year—and not just at Spark Summit—is the need for real-time analysis of fast data, including Internet of Things sensor data. There are several sessions that will dive into how companies can make better, faster decisions from streaming data, but they are focused on ways to architect and speed Spark with software improvements.

Getting true real-time intelligence from Spark requires a new hardware architecture, and we’ll be on hand in the expo hall in booth K17 showcasing just that with the Ryft ONE. The Ryft ONE hybrid FPGA/x86 HPC appliance coupled with the Ryft Connector for Spark seamlessly integrates into any Spark infrastructure to streamline and accelerate it by 100X.

If you’ll be in New York for Spark Summit, we invite you to come visit us in the expo hall to talk about how you can get true real-time insight from your data.
