Deep Learning at Extreme Scale 
with the Apache Kafka Open Source Ecosystem

Posted in Analytics, Apache Kafka, Big Data, Cloud, Confluent, Deep Learning, Integration, Kafka Connect, Kafka Streams, KSQL, Kubernetes, Machine Learning, Microservices, Open Source on May 9th, 2018 by admin

I had a new talk presented at “Codemotion Amsterdam 2018” this week. I discussed the relation of Apache Kafka and Machine Learning to build a Machine Learning infrastructure for extreme scale.

Long version of the title:

Deep Learning at Extreme Scale (in the Cloud) 
with the Apache Kafka Open Source Ecosystem – How to Build a Machine Learning Infrastructure with Kafka, Connect, Streams, KSQL, etc.

As always, I want to share the slide deck. The talk was also recorded. I will share the video as soon as it was published by the organizer.

Visualisation from my Apache Kafka + Mesos Session at OOP 2018

Posted in Apache Kafka, Apache Mesos, Big Data, Kafka Connect, Kafka Streams, KSQL, Kubernetes, Microservices, Open Source on February 18th, 2018 by Kai Wähner

I did some talks about “Apache Kafka + Apache Mesos = Highly Scalable Microservices” in the last months… See my blog post with notes and slides from MesosCon Europe.

I did an updated version at OOP 2018 conference in Munich. The conference organizers invited some great people who do live drawings during some of the talks. The result of the live whiteboard drawing of my session is really awesome. Take a look:

Thanks to the guys from Remarker. Great visualisation! Love it…

Apache Kafka + Kafka Streams + Mesos = Highly Scalable Microservices

Posted in Apache Kafka, Apache Mesos, Big Data, Confluent, Docker, Java / JEE, Kafka Streams, KSQL, Microservices, Middleware, Open Source, Stream Processing on January 12th, 2018 by Kai Wähner

My latest article about Apache Kafka, Kafka Streams and Apache Mesos was published on Confluent’s blog:

Apache Mesos, Apache Kafka and Kafka Streams for Highly Scalable Microservices

This blog post discusses how to build a highly scalable, mission-critical microservice infrastructure with Apache Kafka, Kafka Streams, and Apache Mesos respectively in their vendor-supported platforms from Confluent and Mesosphere.

Apache Mesos, Apache Kafka and Kafka Streams for Highly Scalable Microservices

Have fun reading it and let me know if you have any feedback…

Apache Kafka + Kafka Streams + Mesos / DCOS = Scalable Microservices

Posted in Apache Kafka, Apache Mesos, Big Data, Confluent, Docker, Hadoop, Java / JEE, Kafka Connect, Kafka Streams, KSQL, Kubernetes, Microservices, Open Source on October 27th, 2017 by Kai Wähner

I had a talk at MesosCon 2017 Europe in Prague about building highly scalable, mission-critical microservices with Apache Kafka, Kafka Streams and Apache Mesos / DCOS. I would like to share the slides and a video recording of the live demo.

Abstract

Microservices establish many benefits like agile, flexible development and deployment of business logic. However, a Microservice architecture also creates many new challenges. This includes increased communication between distributed instances, the need for orchestration, new fail-over requirements, and resiliency design patterns.

Hybrid Integration Architecture is the New Default

Posted in API Management, Cloud, Cloud-Native, Docker, EAI, ESB, Microservices, Middleware, SOA on August 5th, 2016 by Kai Wähner

The IT world is moving forward fast. The digital transformation changes complete industries and peels away existing business models. Cloud services, mobile devices and the Internet of Things establish wild spaghetti architectures though different departments and lines of business. Several different concepts, technologies and deployment options are used. A single integration backbone is not sufficient anymore in this era of integration. Therefore, a Hybrid Integration Architecture is getting the new default in most enterprises.

Different user roles need to leverage different tools to integrate applications, services and APIs for their specific need. A key for success is that all integration and business services work together across different platforms in a hybrid world with on premise and cloud deployments.

Voxxed Article: Microservices, Containers and Cloud-Native Architectures for Middleware

Posted in Cloud, Cloud-Native, Docker, ESB, Microservices on June 2nd, 2016 by Kai Wähner

I wanna refer to a new article published today at Voxxed: “Microservices, Containers and Cloud-Native Architectures for Middleware“. Here is the summary:

Summary of the Article

The IT world is moving forward fast. I wrote about Microservices and whether that spells the death of the Enterprise Service Bus and other middleware a year ago. This article is a “follow-up” and update to discuss how relevant microservices, containers and a cloud-native architecture is for middleware. It is unbelievable how fast enterprises of all sizes are moving forward with these topics!

Microservices, Containers, Docker and a Cloud-Native Architecture in the Middleware World

Posted in API Management, BPM, Cloud, Cloud-Native, Docker, EAI, ESB, Java / JEE, Microservices, Middleware, SOA on April 22nd, 2016 by Kai Wähner

In April 2016, I had two talks at JPoint in Moscow, Russia. The first talk was an existing talk about “How to Apply Big Data Analytics and Machine Learning to Real Time Processing”. The second talk was a brand new one: “Microservices and Containers in the Middleware World”. This article discusses and shows the new slide deck about how middleware is related to Microservices, Containers, Docker and Cloud-Native Architectures.

Key takeaways of the talk:

  • A cloud-native architecture enables flexible and agile development
  • Modern middleware leverages containers, Microservices and a cloud-native architecture
