Kafka is an event hub designed to execute event streaming at high scale, with low latency and high throughput, making it a leader in the category. Many have embarked upon a Kafka implementation journey only to find that deploying this powerful, open source framework requires more coding and technical expertise than initially expected. Because Kafka is not a full, end to end ingestion solution nor does it satisfy enterprise requirements out of the box, most users focus their efforts on building a solution around Kafka instead.

Equalum’s end to end data ingestion platform is a full solution with both Kafka and Spark as part of its engine. Equalum’s no code UI offers the largest library of CDC sources available and dynamic, real-time transformation capabilities that can both accept and push data to any database, data lake, file servers or Kafka to consume. Additionally, Equalum is a fully managed, enterprise grade product, letting you easily manipulate and monitor your data throughout the ingestion process. Equalum is also a fully orchestrated solution, addressing enterprise requirements for both streaming and batch as well.

In this Office Hours we covered:

  • Common Challenges of a Kafka-Based DIY Ingestion Solution vs Modern, end to end, Data Ingestion Platform
  • The power of the Equalum Engine (harnessing both Kafka and Spark)
  • Benefits of Equalum’s Comprehensive CDC Capabilities
  • Highly scalable, fully functional UI based transformation layer vs Kafka Streaming Component
  • Equalum [CDC+Kafka+Spark] vs. Kafka [KafkaConnect+Kafka+KafkaSQL]
