Why I Think Spark Will Have the Staying Power of SQL

Spark can handle pretty much any data store you throw at it and data scientists can use a common way of thinking about data (SQL) for handling it. You don’t have to use the SQL-like interface, but it’s there, and many take advantage of it. Don’t care for the SQL/HQL aproach? That’s fine, you can use Spark like many use bash for data wrangling. Spark spans many skill levels.
