NumPy vs PySpark: What are the differences?

Developers describe NumPy as "Fundamental package for scientific computing with Python". Besides its obvious scientific uses, NumPy can also be used as an efficient multi-dimensional container of generic data. Arbitrary data-types can be defined. This allows NumPy to seamlessly and speedily integrate with a wide variety of databases. On the other hand, PySpark is detailed as "The Python API for Spark". It is the collaboration of Apache Spark and Python. it is a Python API for Spark that lets you harness the simplicity of Python and the power of Apache Spark in order to tame Big Data.

NumPy and PySpark can be primarily classified as "Data Science" tools.

NumPy is an open source tool with 11.4K GitHub stars and 3.76K GitHub forks. Here's a link to NumPy's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, NumPy has a broader approval, being mentioned in 87 company stacks & 251 developers stacks; compared to PySpark, which is listed in 8 company stacks and 6 developer stacks.

    What are some alternatives to NumPy and PySpark?
    Pandas
    Flexible and powerful data analysis / manipulation library for Python, providing labeled data structures similar to R data.frame objects, statistical functions, and much more.
    MATLAB
    Using MATLAB, you can analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models and applications. The language, tools, and built-in math functions enable you to explore multiple approaches and reach a solution faster than with spreadsheets or traditional programming languages, such as C/C++ or Java.
    R Language
    R provides a wide variety of statistical (linear and nonlinear modelling, classical statistical tests, time-series analysis, classification, clustering, ...) and graphical techniques, and is highly extensible.
    SciPy
    Python-based ecosystem of open-source software for mathematics, science, and engineering. It contains modules for optimization, linear algebra, integration, interpolation, special functions, FFT, signal and image processing, ODE solvers and other tasks common in science and engineering.
    Panda
    Panda is a cloud-based platform that provides video and audio encoding infrastructure. It features lightning fast encoding, and broad support for a huge number of video and audio codecs. You can upload to Panda either from your own web application using our REST API, or by utilizing our easy to use web interface.<br>
