Kafka Connect

Categories: BigData

I’ve already written about the Apache Kafka scalable and high-performance message broker. It is a fine tool, and now very widely used.

Kafka Connect is another component of the Apache Kafka project, dedicated to importing data into Kafka from external systems or exporting data from Kafka into external systems. I am currently setting up ETL (extract, transform, load) for a client using kafka-connect and have written up some notes on it here.
