Esc: Towards an Elastic Stream Computing Platform for

the Cloud


Today, most tools for processing big data are batch-oriented. However, many scenarios require continuous, online processing of data streams and events. We present ESC, a new stream computing engine. It is designed for computations with real-time demands, such as online data mining. It offers a simple programming model in which programs are specified by directed acyclic graphs (DAGs). The DAG defines the data flow of a program, vertices represent operations applied to the data. The data which are streaming through the graph are expressed as key/value pairs. ESC allows programmers to focus on the problem at hand and deals with distribution and…
