It is just a fancy name for components that will work together to make data usable and consumable by the business.
Nowadays, it makes sense to rely on Kubernetes for your data needs. The more we rely on K8s, the more cloud-native we are.
This month I released with @geetakulkarni a VMware fling that enables any K8s cluster to run Kafka, Spark, Solr and ELK.
Additionally, we have a sample market data app stitching all these components together.
The market data is provided by my friends of DevExperts with delayed market data over REST API freely available.
