  • Kafka, Cassandra and Kubernetes: Real-time Anomaly Detection at Scale Recorded: Jun 25 2019 45 mins
    Paul Brebner
    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.

  • Improving the observability of Cassandra/Kafka apps w/ Prometheus & OpenTracing Recorded: Mar 26 2019 44 mins
    Paul Brebner, Technology Evangelist, Instaclustr
    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).
