Listen to Tim Berglund, Gwen Shapira, and guests unpack a variety of topics surrounding Apache Kafka®, Confluent, real-time data streaming, and the cloud.
Apache Kafka® 2.7 is here! Here are the key Kafka Improvement Proposals (KIPs) and updates in this release. Find out what’s new with the Kafka broker, producer, and consumer, and what’s new with Kafka Streams in today’s episode.
Anna Povzner kicks off the conversation with Tim Berglund by explaining what multi-tenancy is, why it is worthy to be desired, and advantages over single-tenant architecture. By putting more applications and use cases on the same Kafka cluster instead of having a separate Kafka cluster for each individual application and use case, multi-tenancy helps minimize the costs of physical machines and also maintenance.
It’s Halloween again, which means Anna McDonald (Staff Technical Account Manager, Confluent) is back for another spooktacular episode of Streaming Audio. In this episode, Anna shares six of the most spine-chilling, hair-raising Kafka JIRAs from the past year.
Neil Buesing, an Apache Kafka community stalwart at Object Partners, discusses the concept of a CoE (center of excellence), and how a CoE is integral to attain and sustain world-class performance, business value, and success in a business.
