How To Get Monitoring Right For Streaming And Fast Data Systems Built With Spark, Mesos, Akka, Cassandra and Kafka

With Alan Ngai, VP of Cloud Services at Lightbend, Inc. and Hugh McKee, Global Solutions Architect at Lightbend, Inc.

The increasingly real-time requirements of today’s applications are changing how users expect services and products to be delivered and consumed.

Enterprises are responding to this by embracing Reactive system architectures coupled with best-in-class data processing tools to create a new class of programs called Fast Data applications. These applications are sparking the emergence of new business models and new services that take advantage of real-time insights to drive user retention, growth, and profitability.

While streaming and Fast Data applications are powerful and create significant competitive advantages, they also impose challenges for monitoring and managing the health of the overall system, which ingest constant streams of data from tens or even hundreds of individual, distributed microservices, data sources, and external endpoints. Businesses must therefore rethink their approach if they wish to take full advantage of the Fast Data revolution.

In this webinar by Lightbend’s Alan Ngai, VP of Cloud Services, and Hugh McKee, Global Solutions Architect, we review:

  • Why traditional monitoring solutions, built for legacy monolithic applications, are unable to effectively manage these intricately interconnected, distributed, and clustered systems.
  • What to look for in an effective monitoring solution for streaming and Fast Data applications.
  • How Lightbend Monitoring’s deep telemetry, automated discovery, configuration, topology visualization, and data-science-driven anomaly detection capabilities help ensure the health, availability and performance of your applications.
  • How Lightbend Monitoring helps businesses not just in production but also during development, so they can optimize their applications for performance from Day 1.
  • A live demo that includes a product walkthrough and sample scenarios so you can understand how your team can use Lightbend Monitoring to quickly troubleshoot problems and issues, and reduce MTTR.

Hugh McKee, Global Solutions Architect at Lightbend, Inc.

Hugh is a solutions architect at Lightbend. He’s had a long career building applications that evolved slowly, that inefficiently utilized their infrastructure, and that were brittle and prone to failure. That all changed when he started building reactive, asynchronous, actor-based systems. This radically new way of building applications rocked his world. As an added benefit, building application systems became way more fun that it had ever been. Now he is focused on helping others to discover the significant advantages and joys of building responsive, resilient, elastic, message-based applications.
