Data Streaming Ecosystem Management at Booking.com

Session Level: Intermediate
Video & Slides

Since its original introduction at Booking.com, Apache Kafka and overall concept of real-time data streaming have come a long way from being a complicated novelty to a common tool, used by a multitude of internal users ranging in their importance from the ad-hoc consumers to business-critical services powering up our property search engine.

Over the course of this talk we’ll dive deep into how a relatively small team of SREs is successfully managing a multi-cluster, multi-tenant setup of Kafka and its surrounding ecosystem capable of transporting millions of messages per day. We’ll discuss challenges they faced along their way while building this platform and take a close look not only at application but also at architectural-level decisions they made to overcome them. Surely, we will also review what kind of tooling and automation team is using to stay sane during the day and sleep well during the night.
