Billions of Messages a Day – Yelp’s Real-time Data Pipeline

Kafka Summit NYC 2017 | Pipeline Track

Yelp moved quickly into building out a comprehensive service oriented architecture, and before long had over 100 data-owning production services. Distributing data across an organization creates a number of issues, particularly around the cost of joining disparate data sources, dramatically increasing the complexity of bulk data applications. Straightforward solutions like bulk data APIs and sharing data snapshots have significant drawbacks. Yelp’s Data Pipeline makes it easier for these services to communicate with each other, provides a framework for real-time data processing, and facilitates high-performance bulk data applications – making large SOAs easier to work with. The Data Pipeline provides a series of guarantees that makes it easy to create universal data producers and consumers that can be mashed up into interesting real-time data flows. We’ll show how a few simple services at Yelp lay the foundation that powers everything from search to our experimentation framework.
