Overview of Technology Infrastructure at Zilingo

Technology infrastructure at Zilingo, consists largely of 70+ microservices that span over multiple cloud providers in multiple geographies to
serve customers and business round the clock. Microservices are written in a mix of Java & Scala on top of the Play framework with Akka, communicating using RESTful APIs and asynchronous messaging over Kafka. These services handle specialized tasks such as Logistics,
Inventory-management, Recommendations, Search, Data collection and syncing. The modularity allows rapid development, which is further enabled by fast testing and simple deployment due to our robust DevOps systems (Chef/Jenkins). All this supports two different applications (Consumer-facing and Merchant-facing) over three different platforms (Web, Android, iOS). Zilingo's data warehouse technology uses streaming updates over Kafka for real-time data analytics. The backbone of the data warehouse is an Impala query engine that queries real-time data stored in Kudu along with historical data in S3/Parquet.
