Next generation experiments such as the Vera Rubin Observatory Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST) will provide an unprecedented volume of time-domain data opening a new era of optical big data in astronomy. To fully harness the power of these surveys, new methods must be developed to deal with large data volumes and to coordinate resources for follow-up of promising candidates. In this talk I will present Fink, a broker developed to face these challenges. Fink is based on high-end technology and designed for fast and efficient analysis of big data streams. In this talk I will introduce fink, its architecture and first science verification cases.
