A new model of data with streaming and Spark

Streaming data is changing the way people look at Big Data processing. The benefit of streaming is that data can be used as it comes in, rather than waiting for it to be sorted, stored and evaluated.

Xin is the cofounder and chief architect for Spark at Databricks, Inc.
