Welcome BigFoots!

This meetup has been formed to discuss customer use cases and design patterns related to Apache Apex, a next generation native Apache Hadoop (YARN) big data-in-motion platform. We built a big data Apex community with the intent to meet face to face in the Bay Area and have a strong influence on the big data ecosystem. There will still be webcasts announced here but moving forward, we will be producing much more content via our online meetup group, BDIT Apex Bay Area Online. Please also join the online group so that you don’t miss any upcoming events or content!

Apex is the next generation native Hadoop platform that unifies stream and batch processing. Use cases include ingestion, fast real-time analytics, data movement, disaster recovery in Hadoop, ETL, fast batch, machine scoring, alerts and real-time actions. Apex is a Hadoop-native YARN implementation. It simplifies development and productization of Hadoop applications by reducing time to market. Key features include enterprise grade operability with fault tolerance, state management, event processing guarantees, no data loss, high performance and linear scalability. Apex enables users to run any user defined code natively in Hadoop with no paradigm limitations. Apex comes with versioned deep web service and metrics for system and application monitoring. Additionally, Apex includes the Malhar library of reusable operators (functions).

Examples of connectors include the following:

• Messaging Systems: ActiveMQ, Flume, JMS, Kafka, Kinesis Streams, MapR Streams, Nifi, RabbitMQ, Solace, ZeroMQ.

• File Systems: HDFS, NFS, S3.

• Databases/Stores: Accumulo, AeroSpike, Cassandra, CouchDb, MongoDB, HBase, Couchbase, Geode, HBase, Hive Tables, Impala, JDBC, HP Vertica, MemCache, MemSql, MySql, Oracle, Redis.

• Protocols: AMPQ, HTTP, FTP/SFTP, MQTT, SMTP, Rest/Soap, Twitter, Websockets.

• Other Systems: Elastic Search, Solr, Twitter.

Our events will include production customers who will present their use cases. Customer use cases include internet of things, financial technologies, ad-tech, telecommunications, healthcare, and automobiles.

If you want to organize (hosting, presenting, community leadership) Next Generation Native Hadoop Big Data Ingestion, Transform, and Egression Community, using Apache Apex, please email

To reduce time to market, look at operable app-templates that you can quickly import and launch.

Examples: HDFS-SyncKafka-HDFSHDFS-Line-CopyS3-HDFS and HDFS-Kafka

We are looking forward to your active contribution to build this meetup into a strong influence on the big data ecosystem.
