Discussion on: Gently down the stream with Amazon Kinesis

I really enjoyed a talk from re:Invent 2019 by the Sony Playstation team who are using streaming technology to evaluate every purchase on their network and prevent fraudulent logins.

The final architecture took the best of batch and streaming processing to reduce time to resolve.

Batch Processing:

  • Batch processing processes all data
  • REST API interacts with Kinesis Firehose to convert to parquet
  • Glue and Spark aggregate data and persists in DynamoDB

Stream Processing:

  • Adds a speed layer for temporary real time current state decisions
  • Uses Kinesis Analytics and persists in DynamoDB
