Railgun: streaming windows for mission critical systems [article]

João Oliveirinha, Ana Sofia Gomes, Pedro Cardoso, Pedro Bizarro
2020 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we propose Railgun, a fault-tolerant, elastic, and distributed streaming system supporting real-time sliding windows for scenarios requiring high loads and millisecond-level latencies.  ...  Some mission critical systems, such as fraud detection, require accurate, real-time metrics over long time windows on applications that demand high throughputs and low latencies.  ...  We believe that Railgun is the first distributed streaming engine able to deliver accurate metrics on strict mission-critical scenarios, such as fraud-detection.  ...
