Informatica Edge Data Streaming Overview
Informatica Edge Data Streaming (EDS) is a highly available, distributed, scalable, real-time application that collects and aggregates machine data. You can collect machine data from different types of sources, transform or process the data, and write it to different types of targets.
EDS consists of source services that collect data from sources and target services that write data to targets.
You can use EDS to collect data from different types of sources, such as event logs, real-time logs, call detail records, TCP/UDP applications, Syslog sources, HTTP sources, WebSocket sources, and MQTT brokers.
You can stream data to different types of targets, such as a Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) cluster and Apache Cassandra. You can stream data to an Informatica PowerExchange® for Ultra Messaging source to perform complex transformations and real-time data warehousing. You can also stream data to Informatica RulePoint source controller to process complex events in real time.
To gather operational intelligence from machine data or to perform real-time data warehousing, you need to collect and analyze the data before it becomes obsolete or corrupted. Use
EDS to aggregate data from multiple sources in real time. If the data is in a form that is difficult to analyze, you can configure filters and transformations in
EDS to prepare the data for analysis.
You can configure
EDS for high availability so the processing fails over to a backup component when a primary component is unavailable. You can also use EDS to securely transfer data from sources to targets.
