After around two years of development, we have decided to discontinue this project due to a major refactor in its structure and in a near future we will launch Sparta 2.0.

We would like to thank all the open source community for their contribution. Needless to say that you can continue using this repository as a basis for your developments as it contains the latest stable version as of today and minor issues will be attended.

If you are interested in the new Sparta 2.0 with pipelines and workflows, please contact with us in the email [email protected]

About Stratio Sparta

At Stratio, we have implemented several real-time analytics projects based on Apache Spark, Kafka, Flume, Cassandra, ElasticSearch or MongoDB. These technologies were always a perfect fit, but soon we found ourselves writing the same pieces of integration code over and over again. Stratio Sparta is the easiest way to make use of the Apache Spark Streaming technology and all its ecosystem. Choose your input, operations and outputs, and start extracting insights out of your data in real-time.

Main Features

  • Pure Spark
  • No need of coding, only declarative analytical workflows
  • Data continuously streamed in & processed in near real-time
  • Ready to use out-of-the-box
  • Plug & play: flexible workflows (inputs, outputs, transformations, etc…)
  • High performance and Fault Tolerance
  • Scalable and High Availability
  • Big Data OLAP on real-time to small data
  • ETLs
  • Triggers over streaming data
  • Spark SQL language with streaming and batch data
  • Kerberos and CAS compatible


Send one workflow as a JSON to Sparta API and execute in one Spark Cluster your own real-time plugins [Architecture](./images/architecture.jpg)

Sparta as a Job Manager

Send more than one Streaming Job in the Spark Cluster and manage them with a simple UI

Run workflows over Mesos, Yarn or SparkStandAlone

Sparta as a SDK

Modular components extensible with simple SDK

  • You can extend several points of the platform to fulfill your needs, such as adding new inputs, outputs, operators, transformations.
  • Add new functions to Kite SDK in order to extend the data cleaning, enrichment and normalization capabilities. [Architecture Detail](./images/architectureDetail.jpg)


On each workflow multiple components can be defined, but now all have the following architecture [workflow](./images/workflow.jpg) [Components](./images/components.jpg)

Core components

Several plugins are been implemented by Stratio Sparta team [Main plugins](./images/plugins.jpg)

Trigger component

With Sparta is possible to execute queries over the streaming data, execute ETL, aggregations and Simple Event Processing mixing streaming data with batch data on the trigger process. [triggers](./images/triggers.jpg)

Aggregation component

The aggregation process in Sparta is very powerful because is possible to generate efficient OLAP processes with streaming data [OLAP](./images/OLAPintegration.jpg)

Advanced feature are been implemented in order to optimize the stateful operations over Spark Streaming [Aggregations](./images/aggregation.jpg)
