Experimental HEP is a compute- and data-intensive statistical science, in which interactive, iterative and low-latency analysis of PBs of data is the key to extracting more science. HEP analysis consists of several steps that take from days to weeks. We describe our experience implementing selected HEP analyses in Spark as an alternative to typical models, and evaluate Spark on HPC resources.
