This presentation will showcase a processing engine for ingesting real time streams of trades, bids and asks into streams at a high rate. The example application encompasses a multi-threaded Consumer microservice that indexes the trades by receiver and sender, example Spark code for querying the indexed streams at interactive speeds, enabling Spark SQL queries, and example code for persisting the streaming data to HBase tables.
