LogRhythm’s Road to Cloud Analytics
About the Event: I'm excited to have Joel Holsteen from LogRhythm speak at our October meetup! For those of you that don't know LogRhythm they are a security intelligence company that relies on tons of data to provide security analytics. Come hear Joel talk about how they built one of their products, CloudAI, and all of the challenges along the way. Agenda 6:00 – 6:15 - Socialize over food and drinks 6:15 – 6:30 - Welcome, opening remarks and announcements 6:30 – 8:00 – LogRhythm’s Road to Cloud Analytics - Joel Holsteen 8:00-8:30 - Networking Presentations Over the past few years, LogRhythm has been developing a cloud analytics platform, CloudAI, to perform security focused analytics on customer data. We have been faced with the challenge of taking a go-to market product and scaling it for the future while reducing operational overhead. Along the way we have learned a lot about the challenges that come with building a scalable multi-tenant distributed architecture. I want to discuss problems that we faced while scaling CloudAI such as the tension between latency and correctness of results, the tradeoffs between batch and stream processing, or the difficulties surrounding out of order data. About the Speaker Joel Holsteen Joel Holsteen is a senior software engineer at LogRhythm and is the technical lead on the cloud analytics team. He has played a key role building and scaling CloudAI over the past three years and has worked on the entire stack to bring CloudAI to market. He is an advocate of technologies such as apache beam and is passionate about building distributed analytics solutions.
