Hi Jacek,

Thank you for your reply and thank you for very good comments. Let me address them one by one.

  1. Makes, sense I need to use a more up to date architecture diagram.

2 & 4. The idea was to show what innovations Flink introduced and then to show that Spark is implementing similar features (e.g. Tungsten)

  1. As far as I know Spark is still using micro batching, while Flink was using true streaming from the very beginning (more on this here: Spark folks are also working on the continuous streaming feature but as far as I know it's know released yet.

  2. I was referring to this:

Wish I could attend a meetup where Flink and Spark are compared on stage that would help people decide which one is more suitable for their use cases

That would be awesome! I would definitely visit a meetup like this.

Can't wait to read next instalments.
I would be glad to read your comments and suggestions! Thank you for your comment again.
