McLean, VA (PRWEB) November 12, 2014

MetiStream, a leader in implementing highly scalable real-time analytic and streaming solutions using innovative open source technologies, announced today that it has become a Spark Certified Systems Integrator and Certified Spark Trainer by Databricks, the company founded by the team that created and continues to drive Apache Spark, the most active open source project in the Big Data ecosystem.

MetiStream realized early on the potential of what Apache Spark could do to simplify Big Data implementations and has aligned its capabilities around Spark through its Spark 30-day Quick Start and Resilient Stream framework which leverages the Spark platform. Spark — with its integrated platform to support both batch and real-time processing — was a natural fit for MetiStream’s services offerings and technology frameworks. Investing in Spark allows MetiStream to ultimately share new innovative capabilities, speed deployment and lower cost of Big Data implementations to its end customers.

Beyond these certifications, MetiStream has also invested heavily in increasing community awareness of Spark through the Washington DC Area Apache Spark Interactive Meetup which they founded in May of this year and now has over 500 active members. Last week, MetiStream convened the first Spark Bake-off in DC to recognize some of the best Spark experts in the area.

“We are committed to continuing to grow and cultivate the capabilities and innovation around Spark locally, nationally, and within the Open Source community,” MetiStream’s CEO, Chiny Driscoll stated. “Databricks has been a great partner to team with and we are excited to work with them to expand the Spark community and most importantly help customers realize all the value that Spark has to offer”.

“The continued growth in adoption and deployment in production of Apache Spark by enterprises requires consulting services with certified expertise,” said John Tripier, Alliances and Ecosystem Lead at Databricks. “The ‘Certified on Spark’ Program ensures that certified systems integrators have the right level of expertise and experience to deliver Spark solutions. We are excited to collaborate with MetiStream and to see Enterprises benefit from their expertise in fast starting Spark projects and developing large scale streaming solutions.”
