I use Google Cloud Pub/Sub because it's good middleware and shock absorber for real-time data streaming.

It's incredibly easy to setup and plugs/plays with a lot of GCP services.

What are the best options to host a Spring Boot application that acts as a receiver and publisher from Google Cloud Pub/Sub. I am using Google App Engine to do that, but there is Google Cloud Dataflow and Google Cloud Run that can be used. Which is the best option that can be used for this purpose and also that can handle the failover scenarios as well. Thanks!

We really drank the Google Kool-Aid on analytics. So, everything's going into Google BigQuery and almost everything is going straight into Google Cloud Pub/Sub and then doing some processing in Google Cloud Dataflow before ending up in BigQuery. We still do too much processing and augmentation on the front end before it goes into Pub/Sub. And that's using some kind of stuff we pulled together using Amazon DynamoDB and so on. And it's very brittle, actually. Actually, Dynamo throttling is one of our biggest headaches. So, I want all of that to go away and do all our augmentation in BigQuery after the data's been collected. And having it just go straight into Pub/Sub. So, we're working on that. And it'll happen, some time. #Analytics #AnalyticsPipeline
