What is Spring XD???

Spring-XD is a unified, distributed, and extensible service for data ingestion, real time analytics, batch processing, and data export. The Spring-XD project is an open source Apache 2 License licenced project whose goal is to tackle big data complexity. Much of the complexity in building real-world big data applications is related to integrating many disparate systems into one cohesive solution across a range of use-cases. Common use-cases encountered in creating a comprehensive big data solution are

High throughput distributed data ingestion from a variety of input sources into big data store such as HDFS or Splunk

Real-time analytics at ingestion time, e.g. gathering metrics and counting values.

Workflow management via batch jobs. The jobs combine interactions with standard enterprise systems (e.g. RDBMS) as well as Hadoop operations (e.g. MapReduce, HDFS, Pig, Hive or Cascading).

High throughput data export, e.g. from HDFS to a RDBMS or NoSQL database.

The Spring-XD project aims to provide a one stop shop solution for these use-cases.
