Cloud native computing for fast data gets a bump from Streamlio
|Christian Hargrave in Cloud Services Wednesday, December 12, 2018|
Silicon Valley startup Streamlio launched the Apache Pulsar streaming data project as a Kubernetes application on the Google Cloud Platform, which aims to make a significant impact on cloud-native computing for fast data.
Streamlio just announced that the Streamlio Community Edition, powered by The Apache Software Foundation’s new top-level project, Apache Pulsar, is now available as a Kubernetes application on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Marketplace. With Streamlio Community Edition, the aim is that enterprises now can easily leverage Pulsar’s cloud-native architecture to take full advantage of the flexibility of Google Cloud to easily deploy and rapidly scale a unified solution for fast data processing with a few simple clicks. In addition, Streamlio Community Edition optimizes Pulsar to streamline application management and operations using Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE).
What is Apache Pulsar?
Apache Pulsar is the next-generation streaming and messaging system open-sourced by Yahoo! in Sept. 2016 and recently given top-level designation by The Apache Software Foundation. Because of Apache Pulsar’s unique architecture, it is one of the only fast data platforms that can meet the needs of data-driven and cloud-native applications: on-the-fly scalability to keep pace with constantly growing intelligent applications, breakthrough performance, and enterprise-grade resiliency and data protection.
With the launch of Streamlio Community on the GCP Marketplace, companies of all sizes can easily deploy Pulsar, harnessing the power of an enterprise-grade solution with just a few clicks. One of the world’s largest media companies, a global industrial conglomerate, one of the most storied consumer electronics companies and others already use Apache Pulsar for event-driven, real-time stream processing.
What Narvar says
Ram Ravichandran, CTO of Narvar said: "As users of Apache Pulsar, we’ve been impressed by not only its performance and capabilities, but also by its rapid innovation. Streamlio’s work to make the power of Apache Pulsar available in Google Cloud is another great step forward for Pulsar, making it easy for companies like ours to leverage Pulsar’s capabilities across cloud and hybrid cloud environments."
The shift to intelligent, cloud-based applications and services is driving a move from batch-driven processing, enabling companies to act on data immediately as it arrives. At the same time, a shift in application and deployment architectures to microservices, cloud and containers requires new technologies that can integrate with and take full advantage of these new paradigms. Apache Pulsar is designed from the ground up with these needs in mind.
