data Artisans Unveils Turnkey Real-Time Stream Processing for Enterprises

New dA Platform with Open Source Apache Flink® Makes Stream Processing Easy to Run in Production and Enables Companies to React Instantaneously to Data

BERLIN, Sept. 11, 2017 -- data Artisans, founded by the original creators of Apache Flink®, today announced dA Platform, the next generation of its enterprise stream processing platform. Featuring the Application Manager, the new release productionizes stream processing and enables companies to provide real-time data applications as a centralized enterprise service. dA Platform dramatically reduces the manpower, cost, and effort required to provide a reliable and high-impact stream processing platform across an organization. Demos of the enhanced platform will be on display at the third annual Flink Forward Berlin conference, September 11-13.

Apache Flink is a powerful and expressive system for processing streams of data at massive scale. Its rich API, stateful event-at-a-time processing, low-latency and high-throughput performance make it the best choice for stream processing data applications. Global companies such as Netflix, Uber, Alibaba, Capital One, Cisco, ING, and King, use Flink as the stream processing platform of choice for large-scale stateful applications, including real-time analytics, search and content ranking, and fraud/anomaly/threat detection.

Analysts predict the streaming analytics market will reach $13.7 billion USD by 2021, as companies across industries are adopting streaming data applications for fraud detection, sales and marketing management, predictive asset maintenance, risk management, and operations management, among other use cases. Because Apache Flink processes data in real time and can be applied to unbounded datasets, it is quickly emerging as the stream processing engine of choice for streaming data applications.

"The ability to react to data in real time is mission-critical for today’s enterprises, and Flink is being rapidly adopted for large-scale stateful applications that can process data instantly,” said Flink co-founder and data Artisans CEO Kostas Tzoumas. “dA Platform makes it possible for enterprises to run streaming applications in production across their organization quickly and efficiently. We’re excited to preview this new technology with the community at Flink Forward Berlin and showcase true turnkey stream processing for enterprises of all shapes and sizes.”

Highlights of dA Platform
New to dA Platform is the Application Manager, which streamlines the process of deploying and maintaining real-time streaming applications in production, greatly reducing the time-to-market and personnel required for businesses to realize value from streaming. It integrates with an organization’s existing streaming data sources, developer workflows, service deployment architecture, and logging and metrics infrastructure to be the nexus of all streaming data processing applications within the organization. dA Platform enables an organization to realize the full potential of streaming data processing with Flink and to focus on application development rather than the supporting infrastructure. The product solves many of the process and operational challenges around managing a fleet of Flink applications. Key highlights include:

  • Orchestrates the lifecycle of Flink applications through development cycles
  • Integrates with logging and metrics systems to help engineers during debugging and development
  • Integrates with container platforms like Kubernetes for dynamic resource allocation
  • Automates common operations like redeploying an updated Apache Flink application or initiating a savepoint
  • Maintains records of all user actions and automatic processes for later auditing

dA Platform is available now through an early access program. Interested parties can sign up to take part in the program at: data Artisans will be working with its early access customers to get them started with the product starting in September 2017.
