Sammy Ramareddy & Thibaud Chardonnens
Self-Service Big Data Platform
Kafka and Hadoop have been in use for several years at Swisscom. Providing Kafka and Hadoop as a Service to multiple teams in a large company presents governance, security and multi-tenancy challenges. In this talk we will present how we built our self-service Big Data Platform which enables teams to use Kafka, Hadoop and Kubernetes internally. We will explain how we tackled these challenges by providing self-service capabilities supported by a governance model and Identity & Access Control Lists management. We will also show how we leverage Kubernetes and how it simplifies our operations.
