Apex vs Apache Flink: What are the differences?

What is Apex? Serverless Architecture with AWS Lambda. Apex is a small tool for deploying and managing AWS Lambda functions. With shims for languages not yet supported by Lambda, you can use Golang out of the box.

What is Apache Flink? Fast and reliable large-scale data processing engine. Apache Flink is an open source system for fast and versatile data analytics in clusters. Flink supports batch and streaming analytics, in one system. Analytical programs can be written in concise and elegant APIs in Java and Scala.

Apex can be classified as a tool in the "Serverless / Task Processing" category, while Apache Flink is grouped under "Big Data Tools".

Some of the features offered by Apex are:

  • Supports languages Lambda does not natively support via shim, such as Go
  • Binary install (useful for continuous deployment in CI etc)
  • Project level function and resource management

On the other hand, Apache Flink provides the following key features:

  • Hybrid batch/streaming runtime that supports batch processing and data streaming programs.
  • Custom memory management to guarantee efficient, adaptive, and highly robust switching between in-memory and data processing out-of-core algorithms.
  • Flexible and expressive windowing semantics for data stream programs

Apex and Apache Flink are both open source tools. Apache Flink with 9.35K GitHub stars and 5K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Apex with 7.84K GitHub stars and 568 GitHub forks.

        What are some alternatives to Apex and Apache Flink?
        AWS Lambda
        AWS Lambda is a compute service that runs your code in response to events and automatically manages the underlying compute resources for you. You can use AWS Lambda to extend other AWS services with custom logic, or create your own back-end services that operate at AWS scale, performance, and security.
        Serverless
        Build applications comprised of microservices that run in response to events, auto-scale for you, and only charge you when they run. This lowers the total cost of maintaining your apps, enabling you to build more logic, faster. The Framework uses new event-driven compute services, like AWS Lambda, Google CloudFunctions, and more.
        Cloud Functions for Firebase
        Cloud Functions for Firebase lets you create functions that are triggered by Firebase products, such as changes to data in the Realtime Database, uploads to Cloud Storage, new user sign ups via Authentication, and conversion events in Analytics.
        Google Cloud Functions
        Construct applications from bite-sized business logic billed to the nearest 100 milliseconds, only while your code is running
        Azure Functions
        Azure Functions is an event driven, compute-on-demand experience that extends the existing Azure application platform with capabilities to implement code triggered by events occurring in virtually any Azure or 3rd party service as well as on-premises systems.
