Architect’s Guide for Selecting Scalable Data Layer Technologies

Architects and CTOs must be especially considerate in their evaluation of how a specific technology solution delivers value, and careful of any added complexity or other drawbacks a solution may bring with it.

In this whitepaper we describe the following:

  • Challenges faced while making technology choices.
  • The basics of selecting the right technology for your application architecture.
  • Open source technologies that reside at the data-layer—when to, and when not, to use them:
    • Apache Cassandra
    • Apache Kafka
    • Apache Spark, and
    • Elasticsearch.
  • We also explore how and when these technologies can be used together.
