The next generation of cloud connectivity: The evolution of NATS.
We don’t often talk about a specific technology. However, NATS needed its own event due to the scale of its impact.
NATS offers organisations an opportunity to replace generations of infrastructure with just a single, tiny binary. As a message broker, and with the recent addition of JetStream, it now operates in the space of persistent streaming (think Kafka) and key value stores (think Redis). NATS is designed with the goal of acting as a single, multi-paradigm, global connective substrate for an organisation–or even the whole planet. It is a key enabler for building the next generation of cloud platforms.
Join us and our friends from Synadia, Form3 and FLEETCOR as we explore this simple yet powerful technology and the implications of its deployment in modern distributed systems.
