Europe and deep tech

A friend of mine said last week: "Technology is seen as the necessary evil in Europe, and this will not change in future".  Sad - but true, brutally true. When it comes to tech and especially deep tech here in Europe, I always have the expression that Europe wants to be at least 10 years behind the current state of the art. Newest example: Hadoop now hits the market - Hadoop! 15 years old, a big and slow data silo. A whole education industry circles around the topic in Germany, Italy and France. It's like Cobol; but in data processing. I talk regularly as a mentor to engineers. developers and entrepreneurs in Europe, and I always get the frustration from them. Frustration about the small, in the most countries across the EU even not existent, deep tech VC landscape and the non-risk attitude of customers; they rather use old style IT companies and pay a bunch amount of money for mostly nothing; instead to use software or technology from startups. Mostly all of them at leas

Compile Apache Wayang on Mac M1

We release Apache Wayang  v0.6.0 in the next days, and during the release testing I was wondering if we get wayang on M1 (ARM) running. And yes, a few small changes - voila! Install maven, scala, sqlite and groovy: brew install maven scala groovy sqlite Download openJDK 8 for M1:  and install the pkg.  Get Apache Wayang either from , or git-clone directly: git clone Start the build process: cd incubator-wayang export JAVA_HOME=/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/zulu-8.jdk/Contents/Home mvn clean install Ready to go: [INFO] Reactor Summary for Apache Wayang 0.6.0-SNAPSHOT: ... [INFO] BUILD SUCCESS [INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------ [INFO] Total time:  06:24 min After the build is done the binaries are located in mavens home: ~/.m2/repository/o

Why we use ELv2 for infinimesh operator

(originally written @ medium ) The infinimesh project chair has decided to use the Elastic License v2 ( ELv2 ) for infinimesh’s operator, effective per today (Aug 15,2021). Unaffected, infinimesh is and will be open source and stay with ASL v2. Open Source, and software et all, brings multi billions of revenue, adds the same mount as savings to enterprises, and feeds the whole digital service industry. I love open source, and I contributed to various projects, newest one is Apache Wayang (incubating). The developer community around infinimesh see an increased use of our tech stack, and we appreciate that in our community. Open Source means sharing code, adapting, distribute and combine, build new features, fix bugs, collaborate. Originally initiated by Richard (Stallman) back in the 70s, as software was on-premise or run on mainframes. These days mostly everything runs in a cloud, and we have managed to make an entire AIoT platform portable cloud native. Means, our stack can run every

Stream IoT data to S3 - the simple way

First, a short introduction to infinimesh , an Internet of Things (IoT) platform which runs completely in Kubernetes :  infinimesh enables the seamless integration of the entire IoT ecosystem independently from any cloud technology or provider. infinimesh easily manages millions of devices in a compliant, secure, scalable and cost-efficient way without vendor lock-ins. We released some plugins over the last weeks - a task we had on our roadmap for a while. Here is what we have so far: Elastic Connect infinimesh IoT seamless into Elastic . Timeseries Redis-timeseries with Grafana for Time Series Analysis and rapid prototyping, can be used in production when configured as a Redis cluster and ready to be hosted via Redis-Cloud . SAP Hana All code to connect infinimesh IoT Platform to any SAP Hana instance Snowflake All code to connect infinimesh IoT Platform to any Snowflake instance. Cloud Connect All code to connect infinimesh IoT Platform to Public Cloud Provider AWS, GCP and Azu

Scalable Timeseries with infinimesh IoT platform Timeseries Plugin

infinimesh IoT platform is built to make data privacy and data ownership possible, without any doubt. To achieve this we have build our platform in an cloud-native way and fully API driven. This allows our customer to integrate our cloud into their systems, without compromising IT Security or even move to public cloud provider. We understand ourselves as a stretched workbench for any IoT related ideas our customers might have. In this blog post we show how easy infinimesh extends to an ultra-scalable time series, designed for high throughput and rapid prototyping, using the timeseries plugin   from their GitHub space. Note that the plugin uses Redis in the standalone mode, we urgently advise to setup a Redis cluster if you want to run the plugin in production!   The plugin comes as a ready-to-ship docker container, including Redislab TimeSeries and Grafana to enable easy PoC and Hackathons.   To get it running, you need to have either a working docker environment or kubernetes  insta
