In this episode of the ARCHITECHT Show, Ion Stoica talks about the promise of real-time data and machine learning he's pursuing with the new RISELab project he directs at UC-Berkeley, along with some other big names in big data. Stoica previously was director of the university's AMPLab, which created and helped to mature technologies such as Apache Spark, Apache Mesos and Alluxio. Stoica is also co-founder and executive chairman of Apache Spark startup Databricks, and he shares some insights into that company's business and the evolution of the big data ecosystem.
In the news segment, co-hosts Derrick Harris (ARCHITECHT) and Barb Darrow (Fortune) discuss Microsoft (and possibly AWS) doubling down on Kubernetes, Google's cloudy cloud revenue, GoDaddy getting out of the cloud business, and the possibility of Meg Whitman as Uber CEO.
