Pravega is designed to support the new generation of streaming applications; applications that deal with a large amount of data arriving continuously. Considering the lack of a modern storage solution built ground up for such applications in the industry, several professionals from across the industry from companies such as Amazon AWS, Microsoft, Google, Facebook joined leading storage company EMC to build a new class of streaming storage solution. Their experience in developing several systems at scale, e.g., AWS SQS, AWS Simple Workflow, Azure Data Lake, Apache ZooKeeper and Apache BookKeeper has been a crucial factor in overcoming the challenges of designing a storage system that has the stream as a core primitive.
