Their new platform with open source Apache Flink will enable enterprise clients to analyze large quantities of data in real-time.
Data Artisans, the company founded by the creators of Apache Flink, has launched what they are calling the industry’s first turnkey stream processing platform. The company says it gives enterprises the power to get near-instant insights and provide live data and service-centric applications and business models. The DA platform reduces the costs and manpower needed to deploy stream processing and is designed to be reliable and high-impact.
“A streaming data architecture is the signature DNA of companies that have disrupted industries ranging from financial services to telecom to high technology and more, and enterprises of all types are under pressure to be able to react to data in real time so they can compete today,” said Kostas Tzoumas, co-founder and CEO of data Artisans. “dA Platform makes it easier than ever for businesses to deploy and manage streaming applications, allowing them to focus on building strategic new real-time products and services for customers rather than the supporting infrastructure.”

The DA Platform includes open source Apache Flink and is built to provide stateful stream processing and unify different components for seamless integration, deployment, and operations. Data is collected, processed and analyzed in real time. Flink is in use by many major companies including Cisco, ING, Netflix and Capital One. It’s designed to handle large data processing operations such as fraud detection, machine learning, threat detection, and search ranking.
According to the company, key features of the platform include:
- Orchestrates the lifecycle of Flink applications through development cycles
- Integrates with logging and metrics systems to help engineers during debugging and development
- Deploys streaming applications on Kubernetes for dynamic resource allocation
- Automates common operations like redeploying an updated Flink application or initiating a savepoint
- Maintains records of all user actions and automatic processes for later auditing
The platform is available via a subscription model based on the number of cores.
