Powering User Experiences with Streaming Dataflow

Streaming dataflow provides a unique solution to scaling OLTP applications by allowing for an efficient cache implementation that does not diverge from the relational model of the underlying data store. In this talk, we will walk through the fundamentals of streaming dataflow and discuss the architecture of ReadySet, a streaming dataflow system designed specifically for operational workloads. We’ll develop an understanding of how this architecture addresses many of the standard pain points that engineering teams face when preparing applications for web-scale workloads and how it can be used to simplify the modern web application data stack through case studies and benchmarks.
