We’re pleased to announce a new partnership with Confluent, the company founded by the creators of Apache Kafka, as a Consulting and System Integrator Partner.
Apache™ Kafka™ is an open-source messaging system, written in Scala and programmed to handle data feeds in real-time in a highly-scalable, durable, and fault tolerant environment. It’s also fast; a single Kafka broker can deal with hundreds of megabytes of reads and writes per second from thousands of clients.
Leveraging the power of Kafka is the Confluent Platform. The platform contains all the components needed to create a scalable, high-performance system for dealing with Big Data. The Confluent Platform manages large data streams making them available throughout an organization. It provides various industries, from retail, logistics and manufacturing, to financial services and online social networking, a scalable, unified, real-time data pipeline that enables applications ranging from large volume data integration to big data analysis with Hadoop to real-time stream processing.
The Confluent Platform:
