Data Locality: The Path to Effective Net-Zero Latency

Video / 04/04/2023

Hear from Nstream Developer Evangelist Fred Patton as he discusses the concept of data locality and its importance in achieving net-zero latency. Lack of data locality can result in data traveling far beyond the necessary and optimal distance, resulting in congestion and delays. Nstream’s SwimOS (open-source) platform solves this problem by situating its processing unit near its requisite data stores and making the processing unit its own data store.

Watch the video to better understand:

  • Why data locality is crucial in achieving net-zero latency
  • The impact and cost of processing in memory
  • Four essentials to consider to achieve net-zero latency
