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 Apache Flink stack. 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.

With the addition of Apache Flink – Eventador.io has a true end-to-end enterprise grade stream processing platform. We run the complex infrastructure and provide support, you can focus on your streaming code.
