In traditional data streaming, the data retention limit has been governed by the local disk storage capacity of the cluster, forcing users to provision additional hardware for longer data retention. A new approach to streaming data, the cloud-first storage model leverages the public cloud as the default storage, enabling users to take advantage of a more economical, scalable and reliable medium – object stores such as AWS S3 and Google Cloud Storage. This approach not only significantly lowers the storage costs of streaming data environments, it also opens valuable new use cases that combine both real-time and historical data.

In this webinar, we will discuss the following:

  • What is a cloud-first storage model?
  • What are the key drivers in cloud-first storage?
  • New capabilities and use cases from combining real-time and historical data
  • Cost efficiencies from using object stores as the default storage for streaming data
