Multi-Region Data Streaming with Redpanda

Real time data streaming platforms such as Redpanda have become a mission critical component in enterprise infrastructure. Multi-region deployments of streaming applications can provide important benefits, such as improved resiliency, better performance and cost reduction.

Developers and architects must consider various trade-offs in multi-region streaming: the level of data consistency required, the desired behaviour on failures, and how to configure data placement for best performance. This talk will introduce the design of Redpanda’s Multi-Region feature, and describe how we leveraged Raft protocol properties, a hierarchical constraint solver, automatic data balancing, and tiered storage to provide an easy to use and flexible model of building reliable multi-region data streaming applications

In-Process Analytical Data Management with DuckDB

Monday Mar 27 / 05:25PM BST

Analytical data management systems have long been monolithic monsters far removed from the action by ancient protocols. Redesigning them to move into the application process greatly streamlines data transfer, deployment, and management.
