About the Workshop
In the last few years, Apache Kafka® has been used extensively in enterprises for real-time data collecting, delivering, and processing. One of the fastest growing strategies is how Microservices architectures enable organizations like Liberty Mutual, to evolve their systems away from the slow and unresponsive shared-state architectures of the past. Confluent provides a streaming platform for incorporating data in flight into a lightweight, efficient, and responsive microservices architecture. Confluent is the backbone for event driven services.
One of the biggest questions the microservices world needs to answer today is how services fit into an increasingly fast and data-centric world. Stream processing is one answer, but how does this relate with other data technologies and what will the future really look like?
Join Viktor Gamov, Confluent Developer Advocate, for an interactive session to discuss:
Commit Logs in an Age of Microservices
Microservice architectures provide a robust challenge to the traditional centralized database we have come to understand. In this workshop, we’ll explore the notion of unbundling that database, and putting a distributed commit log at the center of our information architecture.
As events impinge on our system, we store them in a durable, immutable log (happily provided by Apache Kafka), allowing each microservice to create a derived view of the data according to the needs of its clients.
Event-based integration avoids the now-well-known problems of RPC and database-based service integration, and allows the information architecture of the future to take advantage of the growing functionality of stream processing systems like Kafka, allowing us to create systems that can more easily adapt to the changing needs of the enterprise and provide the real-time results we are increasingly being asked to provide.
You will get insight on
