Real-time Data Streaming with AWS Kinesis

Blog > Real-time Data Streaming with AWS Kinesis

AWS Kinesis

AWS Kinesis is one of the best-managed services, which significantly scales elastically, especially for real-time processing of the data at a massive point. These services can collect a large stream of data records, which are incredibly consumed by the application process that runs on Amazon EC2 instances. The amazon kinesis is used to collect, streamline, process and analyze the data to get a perfect insight and quick response to the information. Aws Kinesis also offers the key capabilities at a cost-effective price to process the streamlined data at a particular scale with flexible tools according to the needs and requirements.

Enabling Real-Time Analytics with AWS Kinesis

Data streaming technology enables a customer to ingest, process, and analyze high volumes of high-velocity data from various sources in real-time.

Key Components

  • Source
  • Stream Ingestion
  • Stream Storage
  • Stream Processing

AWS Kinesis provides an architecture that brings all of these components together. AWS provides several options for consumption from Kinesis data streams. Amazon Kinesis enhance Fan-Out allows for multiple consumers, each at 2MB/second independently. The user can get real-time data such as video, audio, application logs, and website clicks streams.

AWS Kinesis Advantages for Data Streaming

Real-Time: Amazon Kinesis enables us to ingest buffer and process streaming data in real-time to drive insights in seconds or minutes instead of hours or days.

Fully Managed: Amazon Kinesis is fully managed and runs the streaming applications without requiring users to manage complex infrastructures.  

Scalable: Amazon Kinesis can manage any amount of streaming data and process data from hundreds of thousands of sources with very low or minimal latency.

AWS Kinesis Capabilities

Kinesis Video Streams: The video streams are used to secure all the streams such as videos, photos, and the connected devices to the AWS for the machine learning analytics and other processing, giving access to all the video fragments encrypts the saved data without any problem.

Kinesis Data Streams: The amazon Kinesis data streams in amazon are specifically used to build the real-time custom model application by proceeding with the data stream process using the most popular frameworks. It can easily ingest all the stored data with all the data streaming costs by utilizing the best tools like Apache spark that can be easily run on the EC2 instances.

Kinesis Data Firehose: The AWS Kinesis is used to capture load and transform the data streams into the respective data streams; the Kinesis data firehose is useful to store in the AWS data store near all the analytics with all the existing intelligence tools. These tools are useful to set up all the loads continuously according to the destination with the durable for analytics, which gives an output like analyzing the streaming information.

Kinesis Data Analytics: Data analytics with amazon Kinesis is one of the best ways for an organization to process all the real-time techniques with SQL. It helps to capture the stream data that can run all the standard queries against the data streams to proceed with the analytical tools for creating alerts by responding to them in real-time.

Use Cases

Video Analytical Applications: AWS Kinesis is also used to secure all the streaming videos for the camera-equipped devices, which are placed in factories, public places, offices, and the homes to AWS account. The video streaming process is also used to play the video to monitor the security machine learning and face detection, and other analytics.

Batch to Real-Time Analysis: It also allows us to perform all the real-time analytical steps on the respective data to analyze the batch processing from the data warehouses using Hadoop frameworks.

Build Real-Time Applications: It also allows us to build real-time applications and monitor fraud detection.

Analyzing the IoT Devices: Amazon Kinesis helps its users to process the streaming data directly from IoT devices like embedded sensors, TV, set-top boxes, and consumer appliances. The user can also use this data to send real-time alerts to the action programmatically.
