Arguably the most powerful feature of Apache Flink is its ability to do stateful computations on a boundless stream of data. Apache Flink is the core of Eventador’s fully managed Enterprise Streaming Platform. That said, to understand the value of Apache Flink, it’s still important to know the difference between a checkpoint and a savepoint. […]
With 2018 wrapping up, I wanted to take a few minutes (and inches of space here) to talk a bit about Eventador in this last year. This year, and the massive growth we’ve enjoyed, has been a rollercoaster of the best kind for the entire team.

I’m fresh off the plane from two back to back weeks in San Francisco – starting with the Kafka Summit 2018 and finishing up with Oracle OpenWorld. Two drastically different conferences, but they both reinforce our thinking and continue to bolster our opinion: The defacto system-of-record for the enterprise is moving to a distributed log […]
Streaming data is everywhere. IoT, high tech manufacturing, national security, smart cities, web log analysis, systems telemetry, AI and ML workflows, and a myriad of other modern use cases are driving this trend skyward.
Core support for Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL) was added to Apache Kafka in the 0.10.2 release. This allows for simple username/password authentication to Kafka using SASL. We are excited to add this authentication mechanism to the Eventador service. Here is how it works.
