Alok Dwivedi, Senior Consultant, Instaclustr
Are you responsible for building Data pipelines for your organization or for your customers? Are you coming from a background where you worked on traditional ESB (Enterprise Service Bus), Middleware and ETL based systems but are no longer comfortable with modern trends in these domains? Or are you just interested in learning a technology that provides framework for message processing, stream processing, real time analytics, event sourcing, or acting as a central data bus for your organization.
Apache Kafka is the leading distributed streaming and queuing technology for large-scale, always-on applications. Kafka has built-in features of horizontal scalability, high-throughput and low-latency. It is highly reliable, has high-availability, and allows geographically distributed data streams and stream processing applications. It’s used by pretty much all the big tech giants; LinkedIn, Netflix, Uber, Twitter, AirBnB and traditional names like Adidas, Goldman Sachs; the list goes on.
Instaclustr is organising a multi-part webinar series on Apache Kafka with an aim to help you in your journey of learning and making the best use of this technology.
In part-1 of this series, we will start with the basics of Apache Kafka, Kafka ecosystem, overview of its architecture and explore concepts like brokers, topics, partitions, logs, producers, consumers, consumer groups, etc.
