Towards a K8s Native Streaming Application

Jérémy Frénay (Babylon Health) and Francesco Nobilia (Nutmeg) - Data on Kubernetes Track - Percona Live 2021

Starting from a simple application which can be deployed in every machine running Docker, we will go through all steps required to transform the simple app into a Kubernetes native streaming application. We will explain the theory and then exemplify the learnt concepts to dene a recipe for running streaming applications on Kubernetes. We will focus both on cultural and technical tricks to help you successfully adopt streaming applications at scale.

At the end of the talk, you will have a comprehensive view regarding all platform building blocks and application requirements needed to successfully run a streaming application on Kubernetes.

Spoiler: you will hear several times the words Apache Kafka, Kafka Streams and Strimzi.
