Learn about the Databricks platform and why we're using it for this course.
- [Instructor] Now, let's take a look at Databricks.…Databricks is a managed platform for running Apache Spark.…That means that you don't have to learn…complex cluster management concepts,…nor perform tedious maintenance tasks…to take advantage of Spark.…Databricks also provides a host of features to help users…become more productive with Spark.…It's a point and click platform for those that prefer…user interfaces like data scientists or data analysts;…however, the UI is a company by a sophisticated API…for those that want to automate aspects…of their data workloads with automated jobs.…
Now, Databricks also includes certain features…that we're not going to look at in this course.…I will mention them, but we're going to use…the Community Edition, the free version of it,…so that way you can follow along without having to worry…about any real set up or anything.…Just log in and go.…So, you have essentially two different things…to consider here.…Databricks is an implementation of Spark…to help reduce complexity of setup and operation.…
