The Kuiper team would like to announce the release of Kuiper 0.9.1.
Kuiper 0.9.1 now is available for download.
EMQ X Kuiper is an edge lightweight IoT data analytics / streaming software implemented by Golang, and it can be run at all kinds of resource constrained edge devices. One goal of Kuiper is to migrate the cloud streaming software frameworks (such as Apache Spark，Apache Storm and Apache Flink) to edge side. Kuiper references these cloud streaming frameworks, and also considered special requirement of edge analytics, and introduced rule engine, which is based on
SQL (business logic) and
Sink, rule engine is used for developing streaming applications at edge side.
The user scenarios of Kuiper including, real-time processing of production line data in the IIoT; Gateway of Connected Vehicle analyze the data from data-bus in real time; Real-time analysis of urban facility data in smart city scenarios. Kuiper processing at the edge can reduce system response latency, save network bandwidth and storage costs, and improve system security.
This release includes several new features and bug fixes.
Github Repository: https://github.com/emqx/kuiper
Kuiper 0.9.1 provides a management console, which can be used for Kuiper node management, stream, rule and plugin visualize edit. It greatly improves the using experience.
