Bharat Baddepudi is a Founding Engineer at YugaByte, working on aspects of the core backend database as well as the enterprise management layer. He was part of the Oracle Database kernel team early on. Prior to YugaByte, he was at MapR where he was instrumental in building a document database from ground up for Hadoop scale.

Kafka, KSQL and YugaByte DB: Building Scalable & Reliable Real-Time Streaming Apps The Easy Way

Real-time streaming apps are increasingly driving business growth in verticals such as retail, IoT, telecommunications, financial services and SaaS. Ensuring the scalability and reliability of the data pipelines powering such apps in the face of ever-growing data volumes has traditionally required significant development and operations expertise. The combination of Kafka as the streaming platform, KSOL as the stream processing layer and YugaByte DB as the ultra-resilient, Cassandra-compatible database make these tasks easier than ever before. In this talk, we will review the key architectural patterns involved in the context of a sample IoT Fleet Management application built on Kafka, KSQL, YugaByte DB and Spring Boot.

• The integration between Apache Ignite and Kafka and the commercially supported versions, GridGain and Confluent
• Examples of how Ignite and Kafka are used together
• Recommended approaches for deployment, monitoring and management
• Tips and tricks for performance and scalability tuning
