Today’s digital companies demand real-time insights and immediate action for everything from purchase to fulfillment, recommendation, and more. As a result, many organizations are adopting fast data applications to accelerate the value they extract from data as it flows into the system. With this practical ebook, you’ll learn the common architectural patterns that form the foundation of successful fast data deployments.
In this book, we identify the key characteristics of fast data architectures, separate them into functional blocks, and show you how to implement those functions using components like those in the SMACK stack—Spark, Mesos, Akka, Cassandra, and Kafka, as well as others. Architects will learn how to choose, combine, and run SMACK stack technologies to build resilient, scalable, and responsive systems that your company requires.
