One key aspect of a robust architecture is that it is built to smoothly handle system failures, outages, and configuration changes without violating the data loss and consistency requirements of the use case. To proactively build such solutions needs an understanding of the possible exceptions and risky scenarios and preparedness to manage them efficiently.
Join us at Think 2019, Session #2397 - "Transformation to a Data-Driven Organization," to learn how IBM Cloud built a data platform enabling all team members to drive quality and growth. We will discuss technical and cultural challenges that we have faced and the strategies used to tackle them head on.
The IBM Streaming Analytics team is excited to announce additional plans for IBM Streaming Analytics in the United Kingdom and the deprecation of VM-based plans in the United Kingdom and United States.
In the previous post in this multi-part series on building messaging solutions, we quantified requirements related to various specific categories. In the second step of this process, we can now use the quantified requirements to build a preliminary design to evaluate the viability of the solution.
Automate weekly reporting to Slack the serverless way. We save time and resources using IBM Cloud to publish GitHub traffic statistics.
In view of these value-driven changes to IBM Analytics clusters, we encourage you to create new clusters, especially if you are still using clusters created before August 17, 2018, as these clusters do not include any of the latest updates. Before you delete your old clusters, you should back up your data, metadata, and any changes done on the clusters so that no data is lost.
As part of the iterative approach described in the main introduction blog of this series, the first step is to building messaging solutions is to identify the use case requirements and quantify these requirements as much as possible in terms of Apache Kafka and Event Streams.
This multi-part blog series is going to walk you through some of the key architectural considerations and steps for building messaging solutions with Apache Kafka or IBM Event Streams for IBM Cloud. This series will be helpful for developers, architects, and technology consultants who have a general understanding of Apache Kafka and are now looking toward getting deeper into evaluating and building messaging solutions.
