Architecting Data-Intensive Applications

More Information
  • Understand how to envision a data-intensive system
  • Identify and compare the non-functional requirements of a data collection component
  • Understand patterns involving data processing, as well as technologies that help to speed up the development of data processing systems
  • Understand how to implement Data Governance policies at design time using various Open Source Tools
  • Recognize the anti-patterns to avoid while designing a data store for applications
  • Understand the different data dissemination technologies available to query the data in an efficient manner
  • Implement a simple data governance policy that can be extended using Apache Falcon

Are you an architect or a developer who looks at your own applications gingerly while browsing through Facebook and applauding it silently for its data-intensive, yet ?uent and efficient, behaviour? This book is your gateway to build smart data-intensive systems by incorporating the core data-intensive architectural principles, patterns, and techniques directly into your application architecture.

This book starts by taking you through the primary design challenges involved with architecting data-intensive applications. You will learn how to implement data curation and data dissemination, depending on the volume of your data. You will then implement your application architecture one step at a time. You will get to grips with implementing the correct message delivery protocols and creating a data layer that doesn’t fail when running high traffic. This book will show you how you can divide your application into layers, each of which adheres to the single responsibility principle. By the end of this book, you will learn to streamline your thoughts and make the right choice in terms of technologies and architectural principles based on the problem at hand.

  • Integrate the data-intensive approach into your application architecture
  • Create a robust application layout with effective messaging and data querying architecture
  • Enable smooth data flow and make the data of your application intensive and fast
