Knoldus is pleased to announce a Consulting and System Integrator partnership with Confluent, the company founded by the creators of Apache KafkaTM
Confluent, creators of the first streaming platform based on Apache KafkaTM, provides the most complete platform to build enterprise-scale streaming pipelines using Apache Kafka and simplify the development of stream processing applications. Via rapid adoption in the Fortune 500, Apache Kafka is quickly emerging as the leading streaming platform for real-time applications. Data-centric businesses can scale their production environments with confidence in its reliability, efficiency, and scalability for hundreds of use cases, thousands of applications, and trillions of messages.
Leveraging the power of Apache Kafka and Confluent Platform, Knoldus has already deployed several fast data solutions into production. One of the very first deployments of Knoldus on Kafka was in early 2012 for a real-time sentiment analysis platform that is being used by Coke, Target, P&G, T-Mobile to name a few. Since then, Kafka is being utilized as the heart of the system for Knoldus Fast Data Strategy.
Always-on streaming systems raise the bar for the product. In batch jobs, there are concerns about high availability, resilience, etc. However, a streaming job is expected to run for days, weeks, even years. Streaming systems must embody the Reactive principles of excellent responsiveness, scalability, resiliency, etc. That’s changing infrastructure for data-centric systems, in addition to the long-standing concerns about having sufficient capacity, security, etc. for using very large datasets.
Kafka ends up being the heart of such systems.
To build robust systems around Kafka, Knoldus fully acknowledges and utilizes the Lightbend Fast Data Platform. The general architecture of the products is as follows
