The Best of Both Worlds with H2O and Spark
Sparkling Water allows users to combine the fast, scalable machine learning algorithms of H2O with the capabilities of Spark. Spark is an elegant and powerful general-purpose, open-source, in-memory platform with tremendous momentum. H2O is an in-memory platform for machine learning that is reshaping how people apply math and predictive analytics to their business problems. Integrating these two open-source environments provides a seamless experience for users who want to make a query using Spark SQL, feed the results into H2O to build a model and make predictions, and then use the results again in Spark. For any given problem, better interoperability between tools provides a better experience.
Key Features of Sparkling Water
Access to H2O Algorithms
Access to H2O algorithms developed from the ground up for distributed computing, for both supervised and unsupervised approaches including Random Forest, GLM, GBM, XGBoost, GLRM, Word2Vec and many more.
Drive Computation from Scala, R, Python, Flow and more…
Drive computation from Scala, R, or Python and use the H2O Flow UI, providing an ideal machine learning platform for application developers.
Easy to deploy POJOs and MOJOs to deploy models for fast and accurate scoring in any environment, including with very large models.
How It works
Distributed, In-Memory Machine Learning
Sparkling Water is designed to be executed as a regular Spark application. It provides a way to initialize H2O services on Spark and access data stored in data structures of Spark and H2O.
Advanced Machine Learning for Spark
Use the best algorithms for distributed in-memory computing with your existing Spark implementation.
Deploy results in Spark
Results from H2O can easily be deployed using H2O low-latency pipelines or within Spark for scoring.
