Streaming Functions as a Service with Apache Spark and Kubernetes

Although there are several popular frameworks that have arisen in the past few years to address the need for Function as a Service (FaaS) architectures, did you know it is possible to use Apache Spark as a FaaS runtime to achieve a similar end goal?

In this presentation Michael will talk about how Spark’s user defined function interface can be used in concert with Kubernetes’ dynamic deployment model to create flexible FaaS-enabled pipelines for streaming data. He will demonstrate how to deploy Spark-based microservices on Kubernetes that can change their behavior dynamically during runtime. Finally, he will examine the future of these techniques and how the capabilities provided by Spark and Kubernetes can improve the flexibility of your streaming pipelines.
