Pulsar is popular word for Bike riders in India. In BigData industry, the term has different context.
This week, eBay announce Pulsar – an open-source, real-time analytics platform and stream processing framework. Pulsar can be used to collect and process user and business events in real time, providing key insights and enabling systems to react to user activities within second.
Pulsar uses a SQL-like event processing language to offer custom stream creation through data enrichment, mutation, and filtering. Pulsar scales to a million events per second with high availability. It can be easily integrated with metrics stores like Cassandra and Druid.
eBay business has few large-scale, real-time analytics use cases as:
- Real-time reporting and dashboards
- Business activity monitoring
- Marketing and advertising
- Fraud and bot detection
Traditional batch-oriented platform won't fit and so eBay Pulsar covers the demand collection and processing of vast numbers of events in near real time (within seconds), in order to derive actionable insights and generate signals for immediate action.
