This blog post explores the state of data streaming for the gaming industry in 2023, including customer stories from Kakao Games, Mobile Premier League (MLP), Demonware / Blizzard, and more. A complete slide deck and on-demand video recording are included.
Apache Kafka became the de facto standard for data streaming. Various cloud offerings emerged and improved in the last years. Amazon MSK Serverless is the latest Kafka product from AWS. This blog post looks at its capabilities to explore how it relates to “the normal” partially managed Amazon MSK, when the serverless version is a good choice, and when other fully-managed cloud services like Confluent Cloud are the better option.
Apache Kafka became the de facto standard for event streaming. Various vendors added Kafka and related tooling to their offerings or provide a Kafka cloud service. This blog post uses the car analogy – from the motor engine to the self-driving car – to explore the different Kafka offerings available on the market. The goal is not a feature-by-feature comparison. Instead, the intention is to educate about the different deployment models, product strategies, and trade-offs from the available options.
This blog post explores how event streaming with Apache Kafka provides a scalable, reliable, and efficient infrastructure to…
A digital twin is a virtual representation of something else. This can be a physical thing, process or…
Can and should Apache Kafka replace a database? How long can and should I store data in Kafka?…
Data integration and processing in Industrial IoT (IIoT, aka Industry 4.0 or Automation Industry). Apache Kafka, its ecosystem (Kafka Connect, KSQL) and Apache PLC4X are a great open source choice to implement this integration end to end in a scalable, reliable and flexible way.
Machine Learning / Deep Learning models can be used in different ways to do predictions. Natively in the application or hosted in a remote model server. Then you combine stream processing with RPC / Request-Response paradigm. This blog post shows examples of stream processing vs. RPC model serving using Java, Apache Kafka, Kafka Streams, gRPC and TensorFlow Serving.
This blog explains the different components of a hybrid integration architecture, their deployment models, when to use them, and their target audience. Afterward, each section shows how TIBCO’s Hybrid Integration Platform maps to this.
This article shows the different components available for a Hybrid Integration Architecture. The goal is not to discuss different vendor offerings but to explain different concepts and benefits of each component in general and how they relate to each other. Including concepts such as Hybrid Integration Platform (HIP), Cloud-Native Middleware, PaaS, Docker, iPaaS, iSaaS, API Management, and others.
