Apache Spark™ - Lightning-Fast Cluster Computing. Standalone CEP is Dead-Long Live the Database. In days of old, when CEP didn’t exist, and we called it ESP, or Event Stream Processing, the whole value proposition that most vendors in the space espoused was, “We don’t have to write stuff to the database to process it.

StormTag - Bluetooth Personal Weather Station. BloomSky's backyard weather stations hope to crowdsource the forecast. Anyone who’s spent much time in San Francisco quickly learns the limitations of typical weather-forecasting apps: “Today’s high 68 degrees” they’ll say, and in return you’ll scoff “Where?!”

BloomSky's backyard weather stations hope to crowdsource the forecast

Because of the city’s hilly topography, water on three sides, and the movements of its famous fog, temperatures can vary widely depending on what part of the city you’re in. You could leave your house near foggy Ocean Beach bundled in a jacket and scarf against temps in the mid–50s, then step off the train downtown where it’s 70 and sunny.

One of the easiest ways to know what the weather is like across town is to just ask someone who’s already there, but that’s kind of a low-tech approach. BloomSky, a startup based in San Francisco, wants to build a network of personal, smart weather stations that you can ask instead. Eye in the sky. Bitcoin contracts — Skynet.

On-Demand Database Services Fill the Cloud

On March 1, 2012, Apple (AAPL) promoted the company’s mobile game Big Win Soccer on its App Store—great news, except that Hothead wasn’t prepared for the massive influx of visitors that followed. Within six hours, traffic to Hothead’s servers spiked a hundredfold, says co-founder and director of technology Joel DeYoung. The company’s software couldn’t manage all the data from the crush of users quickly enough. Players experienced sustained game delays.

Event processing is a method of tracking and analyzing (processing) streams of information (data) about things that happen (events),[1] and deriving a conclusion from them. Complex event processing, or CEP, is event processing that combines data from multiple sources[2] to infer events or patterns that suggest more complicated circumstances.

The goal of complex event processing is to identify meaningful events (such as opportunities or threats)[3] and respond to them as quickly as possible. These events may be happening across the various layers of an organization as sales leads, orders or customer service calls. Big Data Stream Processors.
