Harness NVIDIA GPU-Accelerated Parallelization with Ray
Apache Spark has been the incumbent distributed compute framework for the past 10+ years. But the overhead and complexity of Spark has led the longtime leader to become eclipsed by new frameworks like Ray.
In this technical talk, we will provide an introductory overview of Ray, its origin, strengths, weaknesses, and best practices for using it. You'll learn reasons why you should choose Ray based on available compute infrastructure, data volumes, workload complexity, and more.
We'll show Ray in action, demonstrating performance gains from NVIDIA GPU-acceleration.
