Talks Details


It’s not enough to build a mesh of sensors or embedded devices to get more insights about the surrounding environment and optimize your production. Usually, your IoT solution needs to be capable of transferring enormous amounts of data to a storage or cloud where the data has to be processed further. Quite often, the processing of the endless streams of data has to be done almost in real-time so that you can react on the IoT subsystem’s state accordingly, and in time.

During this session, see how to build a Fast Data solution that will receive endless streams from the IoT side and will be capable of processing the streams in real-time using Apache Ignite’s cluster resources. In particular, learn about data streaming to an Apache Ignite cluster from embedded devices and real-time data processing with Apache Spark.
