Data Access And Streaming

Kartik Paramasivam discusses data access problems and solutions within a streaming architecture:

Using a remote store: This is the traditional model for building applications. Here, when an application needs to process an event, it makes a remote call to a separate SQL or No-SQL database. In this model, write operations are always remote calls, but reads can be performed on a local cache in certain scenarios. There are a large number of applications at LinkedIn that fall into this category.

Another pattern is to use a remote cache (e.g., Couchbase) that is fronting a remote database (e.g., Oracle). If the remote cache is used primarily for reading adjunct data, then applications use an Oracle change capture stream (using Databus) to populate the remote cache.

This is a must-read if you’re looking at implementing a streaming architecture and need to do any kind of data enrichment.

It’s All ETL (Or ELT) In The End

Robin Moffatt notes that ETL (and ELT) doesn’t go away in a streaming world: In the past we used ETL techniques purely within the data-warehousing and analytic space. But, if one considers why and what ETL is doing, it is actually a lot more applicable as a broader concept. Extract: Data is available from a source system Transform: We […]

Flint: Time Series With Spark

Li Jin and Kevin Rasmussen cover the concepts of Flint, a time-series library built on Apache Spark: Time series analysis has two components: time series manipulation and time series modeling. Time series manipulation is the process of manipulating and transforming data into features for training a model. Time series manipulation is used for tasks like data […]
