Subject What is an "analytics engine"?
Date Mon, 03 Aug 2020 06:44:58 GMT

I'm new to Apache Spark and am trying to write an essay about Big Data

On the Apache Spark homepage we are told that "Apache Sparkā„¢ is a unified
analytics engine for large-scale data processing".

I don't fully understand the meaning of "engine" and nor can I find a
standard definition of this term.

Please could you explain this term as you understand it.

Many thanks for your help.
