About This Technical Overview

Stream data processing is about more than just extracting information faster. It’s about embracing wholesale change in how we build data-centric applications. The demands for availability, scalability, and resilience is forcing Fast Data architectures to become like microservice architectures. Conversely, successful organizations building microservices find their data needs grow with their organization. Hence, there is a unification happening between data and microservice architectures.

Lightbend Fast Data Platform (FDP) is uniquely positioned to help businesses overcome these challenges because of our deep expertise in both worlds, microservices and streaming data.

What Lightbend FDP provides for enterprises:

  • An easy onramp for building, deploying, and running Fast Data clusters and services.
  • Intelligent, machine learning-based monitoring and management of running clusters to keep them resilient, scalable, and responsive while requiring minimal user intervention.
  • A curated platform that tracks the industry, supporting your application as your needs evolve.

Of course, all this comes with expert guidance on building your applications, through sample apps, documented best practices, and the expert support you have come to expect from Lightbend.

This Technical Overview explores the architecture and design considerations behind Lightbend FDP. To learn more about using Lightbend FDP in your organization, please get in touch with us here:
