Draft for a Scalable Python Data Processing Framework

Design Goals

This post describes an idea for a data processing framework built on Python for Data Processing project inspirited by state-of-the-art actor systems such as Akka. It is a bit like a restricted version of a lambda architecture.

This could be used in ETL, data extraction or any custom warehouse process, where data are pushed on pulled from one side, need some obscure processing which can involve getting more data from somewhere else, and then stored in a database or storage area.

I don’t have a name for this framework, I like how “Akka” is a small palindrome name. Maybe I’ll find a nice palindrome name in a near future.

I’ll start with a high overview of the Lambda Architecture and Actor Model where I found some inspiration and then describe the variation I would like my system to be from this model.
