TSAR (the TimeSeries AggregatoR), - how to count tens of billions of daily events in real time using open source technologies

A session at Devoxx UK 2015

Thursday 18th June, 2015

2:40pm to 3:30pm (GMT)

Twitter's 250 million users generate over tens of billions of tweet views per day. Aggregating these events in real time - in a robust enough way to incorporate into our products - presents a massive scaling challenge. In this talk I'll introduce TSAR (the TimeSeries AggregatoR), a robust, flexible, and scalable service for real-time event aggregation designed to solve this problem and a range of similar ones. I'll discuss how we built TSAR from the ground up, almost entirely on open-source technologies (Storm, Summingbird, Kafka, Aurora, and others), and describe some of the challenges we faced in scaling it to process tens of billions of events per day.
