Pulsar Revisited with Jonathan Ellis

Apache Pulsar is a cloud-native, distributed messaging and streaming platform originally created at Yahoo! and now a top-level Apache Software Foundation project (pulsar.apache.org). Pulsar is used by many large companies like Yahoo!, Verizon media, Tencent, and Splunk.

The company DataStax, an open, multi-cloud stack for modern data apps, has added to their product stack Astra Streaming Beta, their cloud native messaging and event streaming service that’s built on top of Apache Pulsar. Astra Streaming provides tools for streaming, queueing, and stream processing as a natural complement to their other services like Astra DB. You can integrate high quality video services with added features like injecting machine learning and viewing real-time analytics.

In this episode we talk with Jonathan Ellis, CTO and co-founder at DataStax.
