We spent last week in New York at Spark Summit East talking with the visionaries and data architects using Apache Spark.

PowerStream Demo

At the show we introduced PowerStream, an Internet of Things (IoT) showcase application with visualizations and alerts based on data from 2 million sensors across global wind farms. PowerStream ingests that data and provides actionable insights in real time, giving users a glimpse of how the future of sustainability can be fully realized by adapting data to drive innovation.

Zoomdata and MemSQL TaxiStats Demo

We also partnered with our friends at Zoomdata to demo a new real-time dashboard application we call TaxiStats. The demo simulates pickup and drop-off data from New York City taxis streamed into MemSQL in real time. From there, data is queried using SQL and simultaneously visualized in a Zoomdata dashboard. Taxi data is displayed as it is collected while exploratory analytics run simultaneously on the dataset. The dashboard includes:

  • Real-time data for pickups by ZIP code on the map, total volume of rides, and rides by time of day
  • A map and graph that can be filtered to explore and drill down
  • A live stream that can be paused or rewound to examine a specific time period

MemSQL also hosted an evening event included a special presentation from MemSQL Co-founder and CTO, Nikita Shamgunov.
