Listen to Tim Berglund and guests unpack a variety of topics surrounding Apache Kafka®, Confluent, real-time data streaming, and the cloud.

With cloud connectivity and distributed data pipelines, Pat Helland (Principal Architect, Salesforce) explains how to make educated partial answers when you need to use the Apache Kafka® platform. After all, you can’t get guarantees across a distance, making it critical to consider partial results.

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.
