Realtime Data Analytics at Datadog

Imagine you are tasked with building a platform to monitor the performance of 500,000 servers in real-time. How would you design it? What tools would you choose? (Cassandra? Storm? Spark? HBase? ...) What technical challenges would you expect? As a monitoring company, Datadog receives tens of billions of telemetry data points every day and is working to change the way operations teams understand and troubleshoot their infrastructure and applications. In this talk, Alexis Lê-Quôc from Datadog talks about how they built their (Python-based) low-latency, real-time analytics pipeline. This talk was recorded at the NYC Data Engineering meetup at The Huffington Post.
