Webinar On Demand

Bringing Transactionality To The Streaming Ecosystem

Recorded December 15, 2021

Join Us for a Complimentary Live Webinar Sponsored by Vectorized

The message queue has come a long way, but challenges still arise for those who try to scale the traditional message queue. That’s because it still lacks the durability, transactionality and low latency required to serve as part of the critical data path. Businesses today need a modern platform that scales to serve as a real-time data infrastructure.

Come see how Alpaca, a developer-first API for equities and crypto trading, re-engineered their order management system to process millions of orders per minute without data loss and without sacrificing performance. Raja Bhatia, VP of Engineering at Alpaca, will discuss the issues they faced with their initial RabbitMQ system and the innovative way they now use the Redpanda streaming data platform for their transaction log.

Roko Kruze, Head of Customer Success at Vectorized, will give an architectural overview of Redpanda and show how it brings durability and replayability to real-time systems.

Join us to learn more about:

  • The evolution of the message queue
  • Approaches for bringing transactionality to the queue systems
  • Pros and cons of including a database in the system
  • Overcoming tradeoffs between performance and data safety guarantees
  • Live Q&A
