Hadoop brought MapReduce and big data to mainstream; however, as requirements and usage models expand, new big data analysis paradigms beyond MapReduce have, inevitably, emerged. In particular, there is increasing demand from organizations to discover and explore data iteratively and interactively for real-time insights; these new paradigms can be characterized by the following four salient properties, which we lump together under the term Real-Time Analytical Processing (RTAP):

  1. data ingested & processed in a real-time, streaming fashion
  2. real-time data queried and presented in an online fashion
  3. real-time and history data combined and mined interactively
  4. predominantly RAM-based processing

In this talk, we will present our efforts and experience on building real-time analytical processing framework for several large
websites, leveraging Spark and Shark (the in-memory cluster computing research) from UC Berkeley.
