As the fundamental data abstractions used by developers have changed over time, event streams are now the present and the future. Coming from decades of experience in messaging, Dan Rosanova (Senior Group Product Manager for Confluent Cloud, Confluent) discusses the pros and cons of cloud event streaming services on Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Microsoft Azure, and Confluent Cloud. He also compares major stream processing and messaging services: Cloud Pub/Sub vs. Azure Event Hubs vs. Confluent Cloud, and outlines major differences among them.
Also on the table in today’s episode are cloud lock-in, the anxieties around it, and where cloud marketplaces are headed.
