6:30 – 8:00 – LogRhythm’s Road to Cloud Analytics - Joel Holsteen

8:00-8:30 - Networking


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.
