Resilient Real-Time Data Streaming Across the Edge and Hybrid Cloud

Hybrid cloud architectures are the new black for most companies. A cloud-first strategy is evident for many new enterprise architectures, but some use cases require resiliency across edge sites and multiple cloud regions. Data streaming with the Apache Kafka ecosystem is a perfect technology for building resilient and hybrid real-time applications at any scale. This talk explores different architectures and their trade-offs for transactional and analytical workloads. Real-world examples include financial services, retail, and the automotive industry.
