  • Bring Streaming to Apache Cassandra with Apache Pulsar
    5 projects | | 23 Jun 2022
    Join our beginner-friendly Pulsar workshop on YouTube and learn how to connect Pulsar with Cassandra for streaming! In this post, we’ll set the scene with an introduction to Pulsar and guide you through four hands-on exercises where you’ll use these free, cloud-native technologies: Katacoda, Kesque, GitPod, and DataStax Astra DB. Each exercise will also be linked to the step-by-step instructions on the DataStax Developers GitHub wiki.

  • Query Real Time Data in Kafka Using SQL
    7 projects | | 23 Mar 2023
    RisingWave is an open-source distributed SQL database for stream processing. RisingWave accepts data from sources like Apache Kafka, Apache Pulsar, Amazon Kinesis, Redpanda, and databases via native Change data capture connections to MySQL and PostgreSQL sources. It uses the concept of materialized view that involves caching the outcome of your query operations and it is quite efficient for long-running stream processing queries.

    Dynamically scaling your containers is getting easier every day when using something like KEDA. I use Pulsar and there's a Pulsar scaler for it in addition to Kafka, Kinesis, Prometheus metrics, etc.
  • Real time Streaming Solution advice
    4 projects | | 9 Oct 2022
    Good luck with your project! Sounds challenging but very interesting, both product and engineering wise. AWS/GCP services would definitely give you a fast start, and future support for scale and processing which is great for mvp or a pilot, and I would probably start with the mentioned services as well, but from my experience and based on your performance needs, definitely around financial use case and especially stocks you will need close to a millisecond latency across your ecosystem which I think is hard to get over aws and gcp offerings. Have you tried Kafka, Pulsar, or Memphis? Learning curve would be harder, but in long term I think they will be better for the performance requirements
