New Name - Cloudflow is now Akka Data Pipelines
It’s great to say that the Lightbend family has grown—in addition to Scala, Akka, Play Framework, Lagom Framework, and Cloudstate, we now bring you Cloudflow, the fastest way to build streaming data pipelines with Akka Streams, Flink, and Spark.
The reason we built Cloudflow is to help our users mitigate common failure patterns in projects moving from batch to stream processing: for example, processing data and serving machine learning models in real time requires different ingestion and processing capabilities, as well as scalability and availability requirements, especially when deployed to cloud-native architectures. Cloudflow spans all aspects of the application lifecycle to dramatically accelerate time to market for streaming data applications.
In this talk by Craig Blitz, Senior Product Director at Lightbend, we take a look at Cloudflow from the builder perspective, including:
Getting started with Cloudflow is as easy as a single sbt command in the local developer sandbox. From there, you can deploy to your Kubernetes cluster. For observability, telemetry, and system health monitoring, that's all included as part of a Lightbend Platform subscription. You can schedule a demo with us to learn more:
