Introducing Microsoft StreamInsight: Getting Kinky with Real-Time Data

Where
Lone Star College - Montgomery

Introduced as a part of the Sql Server 2008 R2 platform, StreamInsight is Microsoft’s Complex Event Processing (CEP) engine. It allows you to analyze and process large volumes of data - think tens to hundreds of thousands of events per second - with sub-second response time. It’s as close to real time as you can get without quantum entanglement! The Sql Server engine may be fast … but it’s just not that fast. This presentation will introduce core CEP concepts and sample uses cases and then dive into kinkiness with real-time data, including hosting StreamInsight, getting data into (and out of) the engine, how time is handled, writing queries in Linq and how to extend the StreamInsight engine. It’s a whole new paradigm of looking at data.
