Talks

Streaming in the Extreme

Jim Scott View Bio

Have you ever heard of Kafka? Are you ready to start streaming all of the events in your business? What happens to your streaming solution when you outgrow your single data center? What happens when you are at a company that is already running multiple data centers and you need to implement streaming across data centers? I will discuss technologies like Kafka that can be used to accomplish, real-time, lossless messaging that works in both single and multiple globally dispersed data centers. I will also describe how to handle the data coming in through these streams in both batch processes as well as real-time processes.What about when you need to scale to a trillion events per day? I will discuss technologies like Kafka that can be used to accomplish, real-time, lossless messaging that works in both single and multiple globally dispersed data centers. I will also describe how to handle the data coming in through these streams in both batch processes as well as real-time processes.
