Apache Kafka Benefits

Senior Big Data Developer | Cloudera at Dilisim
We use Kafka as part of our services. Our product (cloud clusters) has many components and Kafka is one of them. For example, we use Kafka as a data integration tool. If you take Oracle GoldenGate as a typical use case, what happens is GoldenGate collects the data for the replication and sends this data to the Kafka servers. We collect the data on the Kafka servers, and we create some transformations, some operations, from that data. We then copy the data to the HTTP or hub site. Previously, when I worked at Nokia, we were collected data using Kafka and then we stored the data on the Kafka servers. We did all transformations through Kafka streaming. Later, Kafka moved data over to the HP site. View full review »

In my previous company, we had a proprietary implementation and we changed it with Kafka. We changed it because we had many different connectors available and it also allowed us to create a window to our products for the client. It was an on-premise product and it allowed the outline to take the data out, without us developing anything. You can connect in any language and there are a lot of connectors available, it helps a lot. And it creates visibility into the data and stability. There are several alternatives but this is one of the best options for this. View full review »
