Kafka Connect

Kafka Connect is a utility for streaming data between MapR Event Store For Apache Kafka and other storage systems.

Examples of other systems include:

  • Relational databases
  • Logs and metrics
  • Hadoop and data warehouses
  • NoSQL data stores

Kafka Connect makes it easy to integrate all your data via Kafka, making it available as realtime streams. For example, you can use Kafka Connect to:

  • Stream changes from a relational database to make events available with low latency for stream processing applications.
  • Import realtime logs and metrics into MapR Event Store For Apache Kafka and process them to detect anomalies.
  • Implement a process of loading data into MapR Event Store For Apache Kafka from your primary data storage systems, performing filtering, transformations, and enrichment with a MapR Stream processing framework, and publish the data to MapR file system.
Note: Built-in security is not available.
