The broadcast variables can be referred to as read-only variables present on every machine(in-memory cache). The broadcast variables usage can eliminate variable ship copy necessity, in this way the data can process at high speed. Storing the lookup table in the memory can be possible through broadcast variables. It is used to enhance the efficiency of retrieval compared to Resilient Distribution Datasets loops.
