Apache Flink – A comprehensive guide

Apache flink is the next generation Big Data tool also known as 4G of Big Data. It is the true stream processing framework (doesn’t cut stream into micro-batches). Flink’s kernel (core) is a streaming runtime which also provides distributed processing, fault tolerance, etc. Flink processes events at a consistently high speed with low latency; it processes the data at lightning fast speed. It is the large scale data processing framework which can process data generated at very high velocity.

Apache flink is the powerful open source platform which can address following types of requirements efficiently:

  • Batch Processing
  • Interactive processing
  • Real-time stream processing
  • Graph Processing
  • Iterative Processing
  • In-memory processing
