Migrating from Apache Storm to Apache Flink

 Migrating from Apache Storm to Apache Flink

The first thing you need to do is to not just pick up and dump to a new system, but to see what can be reconfigured, refactored or reimagined.   For some routing, transformation or simple ingest type applications or solution parts you may want to use Apache NiFi.

For others Spark or Spark Streaming can quickly meet your needs.   For simple Thing to Kafka or Kafka to Thing flows, a flow with Kafka Connect is appropriate.   For things that need to run in individual devices, containers, pods you may want to move a small application to NiFi Stateless.    There are also sometimes a simple Kafka Stream application will meet your needs.

For many use cases you can replace a compiled application with some solid Flink SQL code.   For some discussions, check this out.

For some really good information on how to migrate Storm solutions to Flink,  Cloudera has a well documented solution for you:

Ingesting Drone Data From DJII Ryze Tello Drones Part 1 - Setup and Practice

Ingesting Drone Data From DJII Ryze Tello Drones Part 1 - Setup and Practice In Part 1, we will setup our drone, our communication environment, capture the data and do initial analysis. We will eventually grab live video stream for object detection, real-time flight control and real-time data ingest of photos, videos and sensor readings. We will have Apache NiFi react to live situations facing the drone and have it issue flight commands via UDP. In this initial section, we will control the drone with Python which can be triggered by NiFi. Apache NiFi will ingest log data that is stored as CSV files on a NiFi node connected to the drone's WiFi. This will eventually move to a dedicated embedded device running MiniFi. This is a small personal drone with less than 13 minutes of flight time per battery. This is not a commercial drone, but gives you an idea of the what you can do with drones. Drone Live Communications for Sensor Readings and Drone Control You must connect t

Advanced XML Processing with Apache NiFi 1.9.1

Advanced XML Processing with Apache NiFi 1.9.1 With the latest version of Apache NiFi, you can now directly convert XML to JSON or Apache AVRO, CSV or any other format supported by RecordWriters.   This is a great advancement.  To make it even easier, you don't even need to know the schema before hand.   There is a built-in option to Infer Schema. The results of an RSS (XML) feed converted to JSON and displayed in a slack channel. Besides just RSS feeds, we can grab regular XML data including XML data that is wrapped in a Zip file (or even in a Zipfile in an email, SFTP server or Google Docs). Get the Hourly Weather Observation for the United States Decompress That Zip  Unpack That Zip into Files One ZIP becomes many XML files of data. An example XML record from a NOAA weather station.
