Yahoo recently open-sourced Pulsar, a highly scalable, low latency pub-sub messaging system running on commodity hardware. It provides simple pub-sub messaging semantics over topics, guaranteed at-least-once delivery of messages, automatic cursor management for subscribers, and cross-datacenter replication. Pulsar is used across various Yahoo applications for large scale data pipelines. Learn more about Pulsar architecture and use-cases in this talk.
