Today a variety of spheres deals with huge data arrays that arrive constantly. What kinds of data are these?
Just a few examples:
In many cases, a user of this or that system needs an immediate response. In addition, there may be no possibility to store such enormous data amounts. Therefore, these streams should be handled here and now. E.g., data stream processing in sensor networks must be carried out in real time to ensure that a system doesn’t miss out that the indicators reach the critical level, and promptly notifies an owner.
Streaming data processing is a very complicated area in the programming field. Why?
Depending on a stream type, certain approaches and instruments can be utilized. There are two types for the most part:
When working with Big Data, we apply streaming processing. As a rule, ISS Art guys apply Apache Spark data stream processing engine to accomplish it successfully. This tool works perfectly with Scala and Python languages. Being one of the most robust and up-to-date products in this field, Spark ensures data stream processing in the cloud environment, too.
Working with audio/video streams involves another set of issues. One of them is connected with broadcasting. It is quite difficult to build a server when you have one data source and a great user base. To overcome this obstacle, an open source media server such as Kurento can be utilized. Most programmers use C++ language when working with audio/video.
Data stream processing applications may have any database – there are no special standards toward it to meet. Most processing tools have built-in connectors.
