Spring Cloud Data Flow is a cloud native data framework that unifies stream and batch processing for data microservices, across the cloud or on-prem. It allows developers to create, orchestrate and refactor data pipelines with a single programming model for common use cases like data ingest, real time analytics, and data import/export.
Spring Cloud Data Flow defines the best practices for distributed stream and batch data processing.
Spring Cloud Data Flow is the cloud native redesign of Spring XD - a project that aimed to simplify Big Data application development. This redesign allows running stream and batch applications as data microservices and they can independently evolve in isolation.
