IBM Unfurls Analytics Platform Based on Microservices
@IBM #Microservices will be enabled by @Kubernetes #container #orchestration software which could change how next-generation #AI applications are built. IBM today unveiled an analytics platform based on an in-memory database and a microservices architecture enabled by Kubernetes container orchestration software that promises to transform how next-generation AI applications are built, deployed and consumed. Capable of ingesting data at a rate of one million records per second, the IBM Cloud Private for Data platform is intended to enable analytics infused with AI capabilities to surface insights in real time, says Rob Thomas, general manager for IBM Analytics. “We can ingest 250 billion records a day,” says Thomas. The IBM Cloud Private Data platform makes extensive use of Docker containers to both capture data in a standard format and expose analytics as a set of easier to consume microservices.
