  • Kafka, Cassandra and Kubernetes: Real-time Anomaly Detection at Scale
    Kafka, Cassandra and Kubernetes: Real-time Anomaly Detection at Scale
    Paul Brebner Recorded: Jun 25 2019 45 mins
    Apache Kafka, Apache Cassandra and Kubernetes are open source big data technologies enabling applications and business operations to scale massively and rapidly. While Kafka and Cassandra underpins the data layer of the stack providing capability to stream, disseminate, store and retrieve data at very low latency, Kubernetes is a container orchestration technology that helps in automated application deployment and scaling of application clusters. In this webinar, we will discuss how we architected a massive scale deployment of a streaming data pipeline with Kafka and Cassandra to cater to an example Anomaly detection application running on a Kubernetes cluster and generating and processing massive amount of events. Anomaly detection is a method used to detect unusual events in an event stream. It is widely used in a range of applications such as financial fraud detection, security, threat detection, website user analytics, sensors, IoT, system health monitoring, etc. When such applications operate at massive scale generating millions or billions of events, they impose significant computational, performance and scalability challenges to anomaly detection algorithms and data layer technologies. We will demonstrate the scalability, performance and cost effectiveness of Kafka and Cassandra, with results from our experiments allowing the Anomaly detection application to scale to 19 Billion anomaly checks per day.
  • Introducing Certified Apache Cassandra
    Introducing Certified Apache Cassandra
    Ben Slater, Chief Product Officer, Instaclustr Recorded: Jun 11 2019 28 mins
    Gain confidence to build on open source Apache Cassandra

    Introducing the Instaclustr Open Source Certification Framework and Certified Apache Cassandra. Learn about Instaclustr's new Open Source Certification Framework and first certified product, Apache Cassandra. The certification framework aims to build on Instaclustr’s extensive open source experience to provide additional assurance to companies that the open source software they are building on is robust and well supported. This webinar will explain the details of the framework and the certification process for Apache Cassandra.

  • Open Source Database Adoption: Purism Meets Practicality
    Open Source Database Adoption: Purism Meets Practicality
    Jim Curtis (Senior Analyst, 451 Research) and Ben Bromhead (CTO, Instaclustr) Recorded: May 30 2019 49 mins
    In this webinar Jim Curtis (Senior Analyst, 451 Research) and Ben Bromhead (CTO, Instaclustr) will look at the broad trends we are currently seeing in the open source database world, both on-premise and in the cloud. Jim will share how companies are adopting different open source projects and how they are engaging vendors with different service and license models. Ben will then explore how Instaclustr fits into this ecosystem and how you can leverage Instaclustr to deploy open source database capabilities.

    At the end of this webinar, you will leave with guidance on how to be successful in picking the right tool or service for the job as well as a solid understanding of where Instaclustr's offerings around Cassandra, Kafka, Spark and Elasticsearch fit in the ecosystem.
  • How to Achieve Reliability at Scale with Cassandra
    How to Achieve Reliability at Scale with Cassandra
    Christophe Schmitz Recorded: May 16 2019 56 mins
    In this session, Christophe Schmitz, SVP Consulting at Instaclustr will be focusing on the key mechanism that makes Cassandra so reliable and the different level of availability you might want to reach. Christophe will also be disusing how to achieve is and the pros and cons of each solution.

    The Presentation will cover

    •The different level of availability you might want to reach
    •How to achieve it and the pros and cons of each solution.

    At the end of this talk, you will have a better understanding of the Cassandra build in multi-data center feature and be able to make the right Cassandra architecture decision to balance cost vs availability.
  • Improving the observability of Cassandra/Kafka apps w/ Prometheus & OpenTracing
    Improving the observability of Cassandra/Kafka apps w/ Prometheus & OpenTracing
    Paul Brebner, Technology Evangelist, Instaclustr Recorded: Mar 26 2019 44 mins
    As distributed applications grow more complex, dynamic, and massively scalable, “observability” becomes more critical. Observability is the practice of using metrics, monitoring and distributed tracing to understand how a system works. In this webinar we’ll explore two complementary Open Source technologies: Prometheus for monitoring application metrics; and OpenTracing and Jaeger for distributed tracing. We’ll discover how they improve the observability of an Anomaly Detection system - an application which is built around Instaclustr managed Apache Cassandra and Apache Kafka clusters, and dynamically deployed and scaled on Kubernetes (on AWS EKS).
