Questions & Answers

The following are the answers to the questions that were asked during the event:

Question 1: Which open source component is good for data lake?

Answer 1: There are number of open-source cross-platform tools that can be used as data lake such as Cassandra and MongoDB. On top of these, any other Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) based tool can prove to be a great choice for businesses.

Question 2: Which streaming tools are reliable and are good to have?

Answer 2: Again, we have multiple options that you can opt for as a streaming tool. Spark streaming is a good streaming tool. Another excellent streaming tool is Kafka, which can be really good for load balancing while ensuring that no data is lost. Along with these tools, ActiveMQ and RabbitMQ are some good open-source message brokers to have.

Question 3: Are there any out of the box notification service available in the market?

Answer 3: I’m afraid there aren’t. However, you can create a whole new set of services with the pub/sub mechanism where you can publish the notification message and subscribers will get notified for the same.

Question 4: How is it competing with Microsoft Azure and AWS?

Answer 4: The major advantage is it covers open-source components, so you are not using the services of Microsoft Azure or AWS. This makes it far more cost effective and gives you the power to deploy it on-premises without having to send any of your data to the cloud, it also allows you to have all the functionalities on-premises.
