Data is moving. Data has always been on the move, the fact that when using computers we often need data to stand still in order to do something with it is usually a reflection of our lack of skill rather than of the data itself. So how do we query fast moving data? The normal rules do not apply - or do they?
In this talk I will discuss event stream processing, particularly the challenges in processing high-velocity, high-throughput streams of data and some of the solutions that people have tried. We will also look at some of the theoretical underpinnings of stream processing, the challenges around high availability, transactionality and integration with semi-static data sources. We’ll also touch on the current buzz around “Fast Data”, Big Data’s amped cousin, and what all this means for Hadoop and other batch-oriented systems.
