Fully Managed Apache Kafka and Apache Flink | @KubeSUMMIT @EventadorLabs #Kafka #Apache #Serverless #Kubernetes

Eventador Elements Enhances Fully Managed Apache Kafka and Apache Flink with Unprecedented Simplicity

Eventador.io, providing the only enterprise-grade fully managed Apache Kafka and enterprise stream processing platforms with 24x7x365 hands-on support, today announced the launch of Eventador ElementsTM, an initial library of curated and fully managed plug-ins that provides connectors, sources, sinks, and other add-ons that unlock the potential of your streaming data infrastructure.

As Apache Kafka has become increasingly ubiquitous in enterprise environments, it has become the defacto backbone of real-time data infrastructures. But as streaming clusters grow, integrating with various internal and external data sources has become increasingly challenging. Inspection, routing, aggregation, data capture, and management have all become time-consuming, expensive, poorly performing, or all of the above. Elements erases this burden by allowing customers to easily deploy fully managed discrete plug-ins that make streaming infrastructures a true hub for democratizing data across the enterprise. Eventador Elements provides unprecedented simplicity with the ability to eliminate any worry about the underlying infrastructure, configuration or management-it is all handled and managed by Eventador in a true cloud-native fashion.

"This is only the start to a whole ecosystem of powerful additions that build on Apache Kafka and Apache Flink," said Kenny Gorman, co-founder and CEO of Eventador.io. "Under the covers, Eventador Elements uses Kubernetes® to deploy and scale components that connect, enhance, and ultimately help make Apache Kafka into a true enterprise-wide data bus. We've developed our own add-ons and interfaces, all with fully managed support to make using these plug-ins a snap."

Elements initially includes interfaces for popular uses cases including change data capture, data audit, data backup, and schema management-all fully managed and deployed right into the users' Eventador account. This simple, fast, and secure way of enabling these powerful features augments Eventador's suite of fully managed stream processing solutions and leaves customers more time and resources to focus on accelerating developing and deploying the real-time data applications that consume streaming data.

Schema Manager-Having easy and powerful schema management is critical for maximizing data quality in your stream processing ecosystems. The Eventador Schema Manager allows users to deploy and manage a fully featured interface to Hortonworks Schema Registry while also enabling full versioning and easy editing of AVRO-based schemas. This simplifies new schema creation, versioning, and schema validation with a full editor interface.

Kafka Connect: Debezium-Having a high performance and simple mechanism to detect, process and send database changes as a source of streaming data is a common need. With Elements, users can deploy turnkey, fully managed Debezium change data capture via Kafka Connect to stream database changes to Apache Kafka topics directly within Eventador-all with a single click in the Eventador Console.

Amazon S3-Being able to stream changes to a file system sink like Amazon S3 is critical for many enterprises. Elements provides a simple interface for users to create simple file system storage endpoints for streaming data. With a single click in the Eventador control plane, the S3 bucket receives changes and automatically manages chunking files allowing users a simple backup, a new source, or a point in time view for auditing purposes.

Eventador Elements Availability
Elements is available now to new and existing Fully Managed Apache Kafka enterprise plan and Enterprise Streaming Platform customers. To learn more about pricing or to get started with a deployment contact us to discuss the Eventador stream processing stacks enhanced with Elements.

As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations.

Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility. 

As they do so, IT professionals are also embracing the reality of Serverless architectures, which are critical to developing and operating real-time applications and services. Serverless is particularly important as enterprises of all sizes develop and deploy Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives.

CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, which will take place June 24-26, 2019 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA introduces three full conference tracks examining Cloud-Native and Serverless technologies.

This month @nodexl announced that ServerlessSUMMITDevOpsSUMMIT own the world's top three most influential Kubernetes domains which are more influential than LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, Medium, Infoworld and Microsoft combined.

NodeXL is a template for Microsoft® Excel® (2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016) on Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10) that lets you enter a network edge list into a workbook, click a button, see a network graph, and get a detailed summary report, all in the familiar environment of the Excel® spreadsheet application. A collection of network maps and reports created with NodeXL can be seen in the NodeXL Graph Gallery, an archive of data sets uploaded by the NodeXL user community.

NodeXL is brought to you by the Social Media Research Foundation, a group of researchers dedicated to creating open tools, generating and hosting open data, and supporting open scholarship related to social media.

NodeXL development is supported by NodeXL Pro license fees.

ServerlessSUMMIT at CloudEXPO to present 50 rockstar speakers, 60 sessions in three simultaneous tracks. Call for Papers Here.

The three-day event will take place June 24-26, 2019 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA and will be colocated with CloudEXPO Silicon Valley!

Today we have announced our first 12 sessions. We are accepting speaking submissions for ServerlessSUMMIT through Friday, February 8th.

Our CloudEXPO Silicon Valley 2019 schedule showcases 200 presentations, including keynotes, technical sessions, general sessions, power panels, and hands-on tutorials presented by 150 rockstar speakers in the 10 hottest conference tracks of 2019. We are excited to add the ServerlessSUMMIT to this lineup!

Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector.

The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.

As they do so, IT professionals are also embracing the reality of Serverless architectures, which are critical to developing and operating real-time applications and services. Serverless is particularly important as enterprises of all sizes develop and deploy Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives.

Serverless and Kubernetes are great examples of continuous, rapid pace of change in enterprise IT. They also raise a number of critical issues and questions about employee training, development processes, and operational metrics.

DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO Celebrates Its 12th Event in Six Years

ServerlessSUMMIT and DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO expands the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike.

There's a real need for serious conversations about Serverless and Kubernetes among the people who are doing this work and managing it.

So we are very pleased today to announce the ServerlessSUMMIT at CloudEXPO.

At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
