As per discussion on the mailing list

http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/flink-dev/201505.mbox/browser

 - We add a dedicated streaming mode for now. The streaming mode supersedes the batch mode,
so it can run both type of programs.

 - The streaming mode sets the memory manager to "lazy allocation".
    -> So long as it runs pure streaming jobs, the full heap will be
available to window buffers and UDFs.
    -> Batch programs can still run, so mixed workloads are not prevented.
Batch programs are a bit less robust there, because the memory manager does not pre-allocate
memory. UDFs can eat into Flink's memory portion.

 - The streaming mode starts the necessary configured components/services for state backups


Over the next versions, we want to bring these things together:
  - use the managed memory for window buffers
  - on-demand starting of the state backend

Then, we deprecate the streaming mode, let both modes start the cluster in the same way.
