FREE NOW data journey to Kafka
Speakers: Vasilii Avdiushkin and Mourad Benabdelkerim
At FREE NOW, we heavily rely on messaging. From REST-based RPC calls or RabbitMQ exchanges to more sophisticated analytical engines, events are everywhere. This talk is about the story of integrating Confluent Platform as a source of truth for event-based data at FREE NOW. We’ll try to explain the challenges we met during the migration phases of our real-time data ingestion platform and cover how did Confluent Platform fit into our use-cases.
Our Journey with Kafka at DESY and within dCache?
Speakers: Lea Morschel, Marina Sahakyan, Michael Schuh and Christian Voss
Driven by the extreme demands on storage systems that exist within the high energy physics domain, dCache evolved as one of the leading storage systems for scientific data. It has been used to store hundreds of Petabytes of scientific data across the globe. The dCache system is open-source and frequently run as a disk cache in front of a tape system. It is flexible enough to also be configured as a general-purpose cloud storage system and to run on cost-effective off-the-shelf hardware. It is developed by DESY, Fermilab and the Nordic e-Infrastructure Collaboration (NeIC).
At DESY, we are investigating storage events based on Apache Kafka as the underlying message bus along with Apache OpenWhisk and Kubernetes to build a "serverless" cloud, similar to AWS Lambda or Google Cloud Functions.
Storage events are more generally useful: catalogues are notified whenever data is uploaded or deleted, tape becomes more efficient because analysis can start immediately after the data is on disk, caches can be "smart", fetching new datasets preemptively.
