the sahara project within openstack is also taking on this effort.

there's currently a plugin to provision a spark cluster on openstack and 
folks on #openstack-sahara will be very interested to hear what you're 
working on.

the theory atm is that the work done to create the swift dfs plugin will 
easily integrate spark and swift, and it's great to see that your patch 
suggests this works in practice.
