Aviation and travel are notoriously vulnerable to social, economic, and political events, as well as the ever-changing expectations of consumers. The coronavirus was just a piece of the challenge. This post explores how Lufthansa leverages data streaming powered by Apache Kafka as cloud-native middleware for mission-critical data integration projects and as data fabric for AI/machine learning scenarios such as real-time predictions in fleet management. An interactive conversation with Lufthansa as an on-demand video is added at the end as a highlight if you want to learn more.
Not all workloads should go to the cloud! Low latency, cybersecurity, and cost-efficiency require a suitable combination of edge computing and cloud integration. This blog post explores hybrid data streaming with Apache Kafka anywhere. A live demo shows data synchronization from the edge to the public cloud across continents with Kafka on Hivecell edge hardware and serverless Confluent Cloud.
Apache Kafka became the de facto standard for event streaming across the globe and industries. Machine Learning (ML)…
Live Demo – 100.000 Connected Cars – Real Time Processing and Analytics with Kubernetes, Kafka, MQTT and TensorFlow leveraging Confluent and HiveMQ.
This blog post takes a look at cutting edge technologies like Apache Kafka, Kubernetes, Envoy, Linkerd and Istio to implement a cloud-native service mesh for a scalable, robust and observable microservice architecture.
Kafka Operator for Kubernetes – Confluent Operator to establish a Cloud-Native Apache Kafka Platform on Kubernetes (OpenShift, CloudFoundry, Hybrid Cloud).
KSQL UDF for sensor analytics. Leverages the new API features of KSQL to build UDF / UDAF functions easily with Java to do continuous stream processing with Apache Kafka. Use Case: Connected Cars – Real Time Streaming Analytics using Deep Learning.
I had a new talk presented at “Codemotion Amsterdam 2018” this week. I discussed the relation of Apache…
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 Kafka + Kafka Streams + Apache Mesos = Highly Scalable Microservices. Mission-critical deployments via DC/OS and Confluent on premise or public cloud.
