Download and install DataStax Enterprise, which includes Apache Cassandra and Apache Spark. We’ll be using it to learn more about how each works. If you're running Windows, you’ll need to run it in a Linux VM locally. Make sure the IP address of the guest is available to the host.
Check out the KillrWeather project on GitHub. You can follow the README instructions to get it running.
We as an industry are collecting more data every year. IoT, web, and mobile applications send torrents of bits to our data centers that have to be processed and stored, even as users expect an always-on experience—leaving little room for error. Patrick McFadin explores how successful companies do this every day using the powerful Team Apache: Apache Kafka, Spark, and Cassandra.
Patrick walks you through organizing a stream of data into an efficient queue using Apache Kafka, processing the data in flight using Apache Spark Streaming, storing the data in a highly scaling and fault-tolerant database using Apache Cassandra, and transforming and finding insights in volumes of stored data using Apache Spark.
Patrick McFadin is the vice president of developer relations at DataStax, where he leads a team devoted to making users of DataStax products successful. Previously, he was chief evangelist for Apache Cassandra and a consultant for DataStax, where he helped build some of the largest and exciting deployments in production; a chief architect at Hobsons; and an Oracle DBA and developer for over 15 years.
