Windjammer Accelerator provides industry leadership in Cloudstore Analytics and ML

 Why Spark Acceleration?

  • Massive scale of use of Spark

  • Spark’s JVM is very CPU intensive causing server sprawl, performance instability & management challenges

  • Spark does not fully exploit high bandwidth of today’s cloud storage systems, causing high query run times

  • Standard Spark fault tolerance requires persisting data at shuffle boundaries, motivating complex and expensive shuffle services

Windjammer Spark Accelerator

  • More efficient use of expensive CPU resources:

    • Native execution

    • MPP (massively parallel processing)  

    • Dataflow clustered architecture eliminating JVM bottlenecks

  • Fully exploits S3/GCS cloud storage bandwidth

  • Aggressive parallel, asynchronous prefetch of analytics data sets

  • Eliminates need for complex shuffle service:

    • Checkpoint-based fault-tolerance uses reliable, high bandwidth S3 cloud storage: no need for special shuffle service while providing full query fault tolerance including spot instance and cluster interruptions

  • Transparent, 100% compatible

Windjammer cuts cluster size to a quarter while accelerating performance

Windjammer’s slashes CPU to a quarter or more


Windjammer boosts spark cloud store utilization by 3x


If you are interested in...

  • 3x-5x increase in query throughput/vCPU to eliminate server sprawl

  • Making full use of S3/GCS  cloud storage bandwidth to speed up your Spark jobs

  • Eliminating the cost and hassle of a shuffle service  

  • Doing all this with a simple bootstrap extension in EMR cluster creation

  • Then you will be interested in deploying EMR and Dataproc with Windjammer’s Spark Accelerator

  • We look forward to working with you!
