Authors(1) :-Varsha KR

The paper focuses on analyzing the differences and comparative study of two most talked about frameworks Hadoop and Spark - both of which have increasing potential for the big data management. The analysis is carried out regarding components, design, data storage, recovery from failure among other features. Comparative analysis is made by executing certain algorithms on two platforms and comparing the execution time. Similarly, suitability of frameworks for different scenarios is discussed.
