Published originally on TechRepublic
Back in the olden days of 2014, "big" used to be enough for big data. Just a year later, however, data also has to be fast. Really, really fast. "Big data," of course, has never truly been a matter of data volumes. At least, not exclusively. It has also fixated on data velocity (and variety), as Gartner's 3 V's popularized. But knowing that data needs real-time processing and actually doing it are two very different things. To better understand the industry shift toward fast, stream-based data processing, I reached out to Kevin Webber, developer advocate for Typesafe. Last year, his team led the rollout of Walmart Canada's new e-commerce platform built on a Scala/Akka/Play stack.Read More

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 8, 2015) - Typesafe, provider of the world's leading Reactive platform and the company behind Play Framework, Akka, and Scala, today announced a new white paper that explores the evolution of big data to "fast data" and how modern streaming architectures are transforming Reactive applications.Read More
For the past 70 years, digital computers have followed the principles of a model developed by Jon von Neumann in 1945. The model effectively defines how a stored computer program, comprising a set of instructions, runs. Most of the world’s computers, from the very first – the 1948 Manchester Baby – to the latest generation of mobile devices, x86 desktops and servers, use this model. Programs, including the operating system, are run as a series of machine instructions, which are fetched and then run one step at a time. It is a model used in computer languages such as C and Java and operating systems such as Unix and Windows. The von Neumann model has served the industry well – but its limitations are starting to show. "Twenty years ago, someone did not develop a website to have millions of customers in parallel," says Patrick Di Loreto, betting company William Hill’s research and development engineering lead.Read More

Innovation is flourishing in real-time big data technologies, but that could also create problems, says the Reactive movements Jonas Bonér.
Big data means big competition.
As vendors at every layer of the "stack" vie for their place in the evolving big data architecture, one of the busiest battlegrounds so far may be the back-end data movement and logic between systems. For many, the "big" in big data is less about overall volume of data and much more about the need for speed in shuffling data around in real time.
Typesafe today announced it is offering commercial support for a new distribution of Apache Spark designed to run on the Mesosphere Datacenter Operating System (DCOS). With Spark on DCOS and enterprise-grade support options from Typesafe, it has never been easier to run Spark on any modern version of Linux (CentOS, CoreOS, Red Hat and Ubuntu), on any major cloud (AWS, GCE, Azure, Digital Ocean), private datacenter or hybrid cloud.Read More
Looking to make it much simpler to deploy Apache Spark in-memory computing clusters in production environments, Mesosphere today announced a partnership with Typesafe to provide support for an instance of Spark that can be deployed on top of the Mesosphere Data Center Operating System (DCOS) running in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud.Read More

Reactive Streams 1.0.0 has reached its objective of defining a common standard for asynchronous streaming processes on the JVM, for flexible and reactive data processing. Since February 2014, representatives from Typesafe, Red Hat, Netflix, Pivotal, Oracle, Twitter and spray.io have been collaborating in various work groups to define a standard for asynchronous data streaming on the JVM. Not an easy task, considering what it was that Reactive Streams was aiming for: to “provide a standard for asynchronous stream processing with non-blocking back pressure.”Read More
Typesafe have been tireless in their quest to reactively-label all the things – but this week,thanks to the GA availability of the final version of Reactive Streams 1.0 for the JVM, they’ve had to do very little to push the buzzword.
