Lightbend Fast Data Platform Demonstration

With Dean Wampler, Ph.D., VP of Fast Data Engineering at Lightbend, Inc.

Audience: Architects and Developers

Technical level: Beginner / Intermediate

In this interview at the Strata Data Conference in New York, Dean Wampler, Ph.D., Vice President, Fast Data Engineering at Lightbend, Inc., demonstrates the Lightbend Fast Data Platform.

The Lightbend Fast Data Platform (FDP) is at the forefront of the industry transition from Big Data (batch processing) to Fast Data (stream processing). Lightbend Fast Data Platform encapsulates the best of breed stream processing engines, Apache Spark, Apache Flink, and Akka Streams, with the backplane of Apache Kafka.

Based on Lightbend’s deep expertise in streaming and microservices technologies, you get the tools and knowledge you need to create Fast Data clusters and operate them efficiently and effectively:

  • Guided choices so you pick the streaming components best suited for your project
  • An integrated platform and deep enablement to accelerate your developers' velocity
  • Intelligent monitoring and management to keep your running clusters resilient, scalable and responsive, to ensure assure reliability at scale
  • One-stop-support for all your Fast Data application components for complete peace of mind

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.
