Whitepaper: Streaming Data and the Fast Data Stack
Software designers and architects build software stack reference architectures to solve common, repeating problems. A great example is the LAMP stack, which provides a framework for building web applications. Big Data is data at rest; Fast Data is streaming data, data in motion. A stack is emerging across both verticals and industries alike for building applications that process these high velocity streams of data that quickly accumulate into the ‘Big Data lake.’ This new stack, the Fast Data Stack, has a unique purpose: to grab real-time data and output recommendations, decisions and analyses in milliseconds.
