Fueling real-time use cases in online media streaming through Kafka

In the world of online streaming providers, real-time events are becoming the new standard, driving innovation and a new set of use cases to react to a quickly changing market. We explain how, from simple media player heartbeats, Data Reply fueled a diverse set of near-real-time use cases and services for his customer, from blocking concurrent media streams, to recognizing ended sessions and trending content.

We explain how the microservice ecosystem around Apache Kafka was built to ensure the ability to build and deploy new streaming agents on AWS fast and with the least amount of operational effort possible, as well as some of the issues we found and worked around.
