Apache Spark is the industry standard solution for data engineering, but getting a realistic working development up can be tricky. Now with Charmed Spark on MicroK8s, you can transition from laptop to lakehouse accurately and seamlessly.
Charmed Spark is a fully supported, security maintained solution from Canonical for running production Spark big data workloads on Kubernetes. Charmed Spark is a complete solution which includes a distribution of Apache Spark with up to 10 years of enterprise support available per major release.
MicroK8s is the mightiest tiny Kubernetes distribution, and it’s easy to deploy, cluster and maintain. MicroK8s comes with a powerful set of core addons to cover common deployment scenarios and a large number of community maintained addons that cover all kinds of needs. MicroK8s works well in low resource environments like an Ubuntu VM or your laptop, but is readily clustered to form a full scale production Kubernetes environment.
If you’re running Ubuntu, it can be as simple as
snap install microk8s, or
brew install microk8s on a Mac.
