About the eBook

More and more data-driven companies are looking to adopt stream processing and streaming analytics. With this concise ebook, you’ll learn best practices for designing a reliable architecture that supports this emerging big-data paradigm.

Authors Ted Dunning and Ellen Friedman (Real World Hadoop) help you explore some of the best technologies to handle stream processing and analytics, with a focus on the upstream queuing or message-passing layer. To illustrate the effectiveness of these technologies, this book also includes specific use cases.

Ideal for developers and non-technical people alike, this book describes:

  • Key elements in good design for streaming analytics, focusing on the essential characteristics of the messaging layer
  • New messaging technologies, including Apache Kafka and MapR Streams, with links to sample code
  • Technology choices for streaming analytics: Apache Spark Streaming, Apache Flink, Apache Storm, and Apache Apex
  • How stream-based architectures are helpful to support microservices
  • Specific use cases such as fraud detection and geo-distributed data streams
