I am interested if anyone in the PostGIS community here, wants to 
discuss what this is and what it means.. 
(note I recently re-built a SOLR/Lucene Spatial and PostGIS benchmark also)


Much of the Big Data paradigm has been built on the notion of bringing 
‘compute to the data’, as opposed to simply trying to ETL all the 
data to a single central repository. Spark and HANA embody this 
principle by providing powerful engines that operate on data in place. 
Beyond being a repository for valuable corporate data, HANA also 
provides a wide variety of advanced analytics packages – including 
predictive, text/NLP, and geospatial – at blazing fast speeds. Spark 
also provides advanced analytics capabilities – SQL, streaming data, 
machine learning, and graph computation – that work natively on HDFS 
and other data stores such as Cassandra.
