This August, we concluded Pulsar Summit SF, our first-ever, in-person event in North America. It witnessed over 12 breakout sessions and 5 keynotes with over 200 attendees from Apple, Blizzard, IBM, Optum, Iterable, Twitter, Uber, and many more. As we could see from the conference, there is an increase in the adoption of Pulsar and growing interest in messaging and streaming. And now, we are excited to invite you to Pulsar Summit Aisa 2022 to explore the latest messaging and streaming technologies!
Held on November 19th and 20th, this two-day virtual event will feature 36 sessions by developers, engineers, architects, and technologists from ByteDance, Huawei, Tencent, Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT) Software Innovation Center, Yum China, Netease, vivo, WeChat, Nutanix, StreamNative, and many more. It will include sessions on Pulsar use cases, its ecosystem, operations, and technology deep dives.
Let’s have a quick look at some of the featured sessions.
Handling 100K Consumers with One Topic: Practices and Technical Details (English)
Hongjie Zhai, Researcher, NTT Software Innovation Center
With the development of smart factories and connected vehicles, exchanging messages between a considerable number of devices is required for monitoring and controlling systems. In this connection, Apache Pulsar is one of the best solutions to keeping message pipelines simple, real-time, and safe. As the current message brokers are mainly designed for cloud services, users may face performance problems when they have too many consumers. This session will share the practices and technical details of handling 100K consumers with a single Pulsar Topic.
Awesome Pulsar in Yum China (English)
Chauncey Yan, Backend Engineer, Yum China
Yum China Holdings, Inc. is the largest restaurant company in China with a vision of becoming the world’s most innovative pioneer in the restaurant industry. After its technical research on next-generation message queue solutions, it ultimately selected Pulsar as the implementation standard of message middleware for its technical middle platform. To date, Pulsar has been widely applied in different scenarios within Yum China such as business middle platform and system observability. This talk will be focused on why Yum China selected Pulsar for production use and its experience of performance tuning.
Streaming Wars and How Apache Pulsar is Acing the Battle (English)
Shivji Kumar Jha, Staff Engineer, Nutanix
Sachidananda Maharana, MTS IV, Nutanix
This session will cover the operational challenges Nutanix has faced over the past 4 years when running Pulsar and how Pulsar fits into different use cases given its multi-tenancy and configurability. It will also talk about how Nutanix has aced these challenges to stick to Pulsar and even moved applications from other messaging solutions to Pulsar. It will end with the challenges and learnings on migrating from Kafka and Kinesis to Pulsar.
Pulsar + Envoy: Building an OTO Marketing Platform for Different Business Scenarios on Microservices (Mandarin)
Jason Jiang, Senior Engineer, Tencent
In game marketing, the OTO (One-time Offer) model provides an effective way to improve user experience. A very common OTO scenario is to recommend certain material when the player has met the required conditions. To offer such a capability with low cost and high efficiency, you can use a customized Envoy plugin to support the Pulsar protocol. With Envoy’s flexible routing configurations and various functional plugins, you can provide solutions to different OTO business scenarios with microservices. In this session, Jason Jiang from Tencent will share their experience of using Pulsar and Envoy to create an OTO marketing platform built on microservices for different business scenarios.
Apache Pulsar in Volcano Engine E-MapReduce (Mandarin)
Xin Liang, Senior Engineer, ByteDance
This session will introduce Volcano Engine E-MapReduce, a stateless, open-source big data platform, as well as the motivation for integrating Pulsar as a new cluster type into the Volcano Engine E-MapReduce ecosystem. It will cover some use cases of Pulsar in Volcano E-MapReduce, especially in real-time data warehouse and stream processing. It will also discuss typical real-time scenarios and common problems, and provide possible solutions powered by Pulsar with related services in Volcano Engine E-MapReduce.
A New Way of Managing Pulsar with Infrastructure as Code (Mandarin)
Max Xu, Software Engineer, StreamNative
Fushu Wang, Cloud Engineer, StreamNative
Infrastructure as Code (IaC) is the process of managing and provisioning infrastructure resources through code instead of manual configurations. IaC offers the benefits of understandable code, idempotence, and consistency over traditional manual configurations. StreamNative developed the Terraform Provider for Pulsar and the Pulsar Resources Operator, which utilize Terraform and Kubernetes CRDs respectively to provide declarative management of Pulsar resources, such as tenants, namespaces, and topics. In this talk, two engineers from StreamNative will discuss how to leverage these two IaC tools to help you better manage Pulsar.
