While stream processing is now popular, streaming architectures must be more reliable and scalable than ever before—more like microservice architectures in fact. Dean Wampler defines "stream" based on characteristics for such systems, using specific tools like Kafka, Spark, Flink, and Akka as examples, and argues that big data and microservices architectures are converging.
