TriggerMesh hooks up with AWS EventBridge to connect ‘virtually any application’ with cloudy service

Published

on

TriggerMesh has introduced an integration with AWS EventBridge, now in preview, that enables virtually any application, on-premises or elsewhere, to fire events in the service for automated workflows.

The way EventBridge works is that it receives events, processes them according to rules the developer defines, and then forwards them to targets such as functions running in AWS Lambda, logs in AWS CloudWatch, or a queue in AWS Simple Queue Service (SQS). The source of the event is either another AWS service, with many predefined events such as calls to the S3 (Simple Storage Service API), or an integration with a third-party service such as Datadog, MongoDB, or Zendesk. EventBridge also has a PutEvents API that developers can call from custom code.

TriggerMesh, launched in November 2018, is an independent cloud service which is in concept somewhat similar to EventBridge, but instead of being restricted to target only AWS services, it can target multiple platforms including Azure Functions, Google Cloud Run, Kubernetes, Apache Kafka, OpenShift, as well as AWS services such as Lambda. TriggerMesh itself is built on Kubernetes, Knative and Istio.

In AWS EventBridge, the list of pre-configured third-party services which can serve as sources for events is relatively short. TriggerMesh has introduced a new integration with its own cloud service, which means that any event source TriggerMesh supports can now be forwarded to EventBridge. This also means that existing TriggerMesh users can now target any AWS service which EventBridge supports.

Why use TriggerMesh, when developers can already call the PutEvents API from any application? “We do believe that many folks end up doing just what you suggest, adding the integration to each piece of code you are executing,” TriggerMesh co-founder and CEO Mark Hinkle told The Register.

“We believe this is redundant and only allows for a hard-coded integration to a single service, in this case EventBridge. However, by using TriggerMesh it would give you the option to trigger workloads on any cloud native architecture: Azure Functions, Google Cloud Functions, OpenShift Serverless, or the Kubernetes flavour of your choice including Rancher, OpenShift Container Engine, Google Kubernetes Engine, and/or Amazon EKS. Or you could create application flows to other services that aren’t part of AWS for example, populating Confluent with event data or triggering a function on Twilio without a rewrite to your code.”

TriggerMesh has particular value if you are working across multiple clouds or diverse services. “For example, a new line added to a database may trigger an ETL [Extract, Transform, Load] function on Amazon and output the results to S3,” said Hinkle. “However, it could be used to notify a supply chain every time a new record is entered in the database. Or it could do both simultaneously.”

That said, hooking up event sources to TriggerMesh will not always be straightforward. As with EventBridge, there is a list of pre-baked integrations, as well as the ability to connect to on-premises event buses like IBM MQ. In some cases TriggerMesh is still working on “event transformation to make those events into a recognized format so Amazon EventBridge can consume them,” said Hinkle. There is also an offer to create one-off integrations for “users who may not have the expertise to extract and transform events on their own”.

Redmonk analyst James Governor wrote of “the coming SMOKEstack”, a term invented by Hinkle to describe composable services which are “Serviceful, Mashable, Open, K(C)composable, Event-driven.”

Businesses that embrace the idea of using an event-driven, serverless model for multi-cloud integration need some kind of cloud broker, and TriggerMesh is aiming to be that broker, though it is early days. ®

Salesforce should rename its Dreamforce conference to Feverdreamforce because this is getting ridiculous

Published

on

Comment Salesforce execs get so bowled over by Dreamforce, the SaaS org’s annual gabfest, that they seem to lose all perception of time and space.

Take Bret Taylor, chief operating officer, who after an hour of jovial to-and-fro with his billionaire boss, Marc Benioff, at the conference this week seemingly experienced a temporal spasm, interjecting: “Is this the beginning of Dreamforce? Or is this the end? This is the beginning!”

“This is the beginning,” Benioff helpfully confirmed.

Taylor’s confusion followed that of Leah McGowen-Hare, veep of trailblazer community and engagement, who opened a session yelling, “We are here!” multiple times in Ballmer-esque fashion just in case the whole audience had lost its collective sense of location.

Welcome to the wonderful and frightening world of Dreamforce, taking place online and in-person-by-invitation-only, during which you might believe anything could happen. Anything aside from a serious discussion about software, the coded entity on which the firm has built its billion-dollar revenues.

After all, past attendees were subjected to performances by Metallica, the Foo Fighters, and Lionel Ritchie.

Benioff himself took up most of the keynote today to espouse his views on the state of the world right now and what it needs most.

“There is a huge change that is going on, and we believe that change is the change and transformation and evolution and inspiration into the trusted enterprise,” he declared before introducing a meandering narrative in which a combination of Slack and Customer 360 would be the inevitable saviors of a planet gripped by a global pandemic and climate crisis.

His profundity was undermined slightly by a stage set populated by bizarre furry characters who look like the dumbstruck byproducts of a drunken late-night encounter between an Octonaut and a whole gang of Go Jetters.

Products were not entirely absent from the show. Salesforce announced integration between Slack, the workforce chat environment it bought for $28bn last December, and its main products, including Commerce, Experience, Platform, Trailhead, MuleSoft, and Quip.

But for Benioff, top billing was given to trust, the nebulous theme he took into battle with fellow tech CEOs.

He took the opportunity of the conference to launch into a stinging criticism of Facebook during a post-match interview with CNBC.

On the subject of the social media network’s lack of action over pandemic-related misinformation, he said: “It may not have cost them … but it’s cost all of us.

“At some point, somebody is going to say, ‘Wow. This is the source of a lot of these problems.’ You look at what’s going on in the pandemic and the amount of information that’s just plain wrong that’s on there, this has to stop.

“All of us ask the question – is trust the highest value of the company, of ourselves? And in the case of that company [Facebook] I think it’s clear as day… that trust is not their highest value. I don’t know what is. It needs to transform. This is unacceptable.”

Is trust the highest value within Salesforce? Well, we only have their word for it. Or maybe we should ask the furry forest creatures they love to hang out with. ®

The Best Netflix Hacks You Should Probably Try Out Tonight

Published

on

Netflix is more than just an OTT platform to its 200 million global subscribers. Whether you are happy or sad or just want to spend some time with your friends streaming non-stop, Netflix is there for you.

People are streaming Netflix over a VPN to find out the newest and trendy series or to watch their favorite shows in their region. However, there are some hacks that users can employ to make the most of their binge-watch nights.

So, without any delay, let us learn about them:

1.You Can Set Multiple Profiles

You must already be familiar with this option given in every Netflix account. But, you can use it to boost your convenience even more. As Netflix allows you to set up around five different profiles, you can use it to personalize each profile for a different viewing experience.

Since the Netflix algorithm recommends shows and movies based on users’ viewing habits, you can set each profile in a manner that displays unique suggestions.

For example, if you like indie movies, then set one of your profiles that is dedicated solely to artsy documentaries and Sundance debuts. Hence, Netflix will grasp the specific algorithm and generate suggestions as per that.

2.Make Use of Smart Downloads

Having an option to download your favorite films and TV shows and watch them while offline is cool but, you have another better trick to follow. By enabling smart downloads Netflix will pre-download the next episode of the show before you finish the current episode.

In addition to this, it will also wipe out all the watched episodes, so you don’t have to stress about emptying your phone storage.

It does not cost you an extra data fee, as this feature only works over a wifi network. So, if you own a wifi network at home, then turn this feature on for tonight’s binge-watch.

3.Check And Delete Selective Titles from Your Watch History

Sometimes the “Continue watching” queue can get embarrassing, especially if you are sharing your account with your friends. For this, you can check and delete selective titles from your viewing history. This will keep your queue clear from shows you don’t want to pop up on your feed.

For this, you need to go to your “Account” section and then go to “My profile.” Tap on the viewing activity. This will bring up the name list of every show you have ever watched on your app. From here, you can delete the titles you want.

4.Watch Only the Best Shows with Netflix Roulette

People are streaming Netflix with the help of VPN to watch their newest, trendy or favorite show for the 50th time. However, once in a while, we all face the situation where we get confused on which show to watch among the vast content available across Netflix.

Well, now you have a hack to tackle it. Here’s a website called Netflix Roulette that suggests movies and TV shows that are based on Rotten Tomatoes rating, IMDB score, and the genre you prefer.

While using the website, you will need to tick on your preferred genre. Also, select what you want to see in movies or TV shows. Further, choose the rating from IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes from the list given on the Netflix Roulette.

5.Learn Helpful Keyboard Shortcuts

Keyboard shortcuts have always been our best friends while using any application or program. Netflix, too, has such shortcuts for its viewers.

To pause or play a show, you can tap on the spacebar, and to stream on full-screen, press F. Also, get familiar with other Netflix keyboard shortcuts to receive maximum convenience.

6.Let Netflix Pick a Show For You

In place of scrolling for long hours to get something engaging to watch, you can use the Netflix feature “shuffle play” to find the best picks. Though shuffle play sounds like your app will pick something random from the library but in actual Netflix uses its algorithm to offer shows on movies that you will definitely be interested in.

It uses data from your watch history and watchlist. Now you can always have something to watch based on your preferences.

 

  1. Find out about the upcoming shows and movies beforehand

Many shows and movies come and go on Netflix each month. Netflix updates movies and show lists regularly. Hence, you can check the titles to find out which ones are available. Also, you can look for which shows are coming in the upcoming days with this list.

So, bookmark the updated calendar for 2021 by Netflix. This calendar marks the releasing dates for all the Netflix originals from the time they get announced.

Conclusion

We all love watching shows and movies while relaxing. Some even make time to finish their favorite series during workdays. The craze for binge-watching is blooming. Hence by using the hacks as mentioned earlier, you can enjoy it at most.

Fivetran snags $565m funding round as Snowflake attempts to eat its lunch with in-house data integration tools

Published

on

Automated data integration outfit Fivetran has confirmed a $565m funding round – valuing the company at $5.6bn, roughly the GDP of Montenegro.

Meanwhile, the 2013-founded company has used some of its startup capital and bought data replication firm HVR, which employs log-based change data capture (CDC) technology, in a cash-and-stock deal worth around $700m.

The investment arm of web pioneer Marc Andreessen (a16z) led the Fivetran funding round, which also included General Catalyst, CEAS Investments, and Matrix Partners, and takes the total startup capital to $730m to date.

Promising prebuilt connectors, automated schema migration and SQL transformation, Fivetran, which was founded by CEO George Fraser and COO Taylor Brown, counts sportswear manufacturer ASICS, Autodesk, BJ’s Restaurants, DocuSign, and media giant Lionsgate among its customers.

The company claims its technology offers ready-to-use connectors that automatically adapt as schemas and APIs change, ensuring consistent, reliable access to data, saving time for data wranglers tasked with data warehousing and analytics problems.

In a pre-canned statement, Martin Casado, general partner at Andreessen Horowitz, said: “Fivetran solves the complex challenge of scaling and automating data integration better than anyone else, and joining forces with HVR will expand Fivetran’s capabilities to address the performance and security requirements of the enterprise.”

Fivetran has made strides in recent years, hitching its wagon to that other data darling of the day, Databricks, now valued at an incredible $38bn.

Earlier this year, Gartner offered the firm a notable mention as one of the technologies worth considering outside the main cloud providers’ data management tools.

Despite investor enthusiasm, Fivetran faces challenges. Namely that the cloud providers and other cloud-based data warehousing companies could set out to eat its lunch.

For example, Snowflake has launched its own ETL tools, hoping data engineers, data scientists, and developers will use ETL/ELT, data preparation, and feature engineering tools within the Snowflake environment rather than using third-party tools.

At the time, Philip Howard, research director at Bloor Research, named Fivetran and Matillion as companies that might find the move a challenge to their future growth strategies. ®
