Kafka Connect Azure Blob Storage Sink Connector

The Azure Blob Storage Sink Connector integrates Azure Blob Storage with Apache Kafka. The connector can export data from Apache Kafka® topics to Azure Blob Storage objects in either Avro or JSON formats. Depending on your environment, the Azure Blob Storage connector can export data by guaranteeing exactly-once delivery semantics to consumers of the Azure Blob Storage objects it produces.

The Azure Blob Storage sink connector periodically polls data from Kafka and in turn uploads it to Azure Blob Storage. A partitioner is used to split the data of every Kafka partition into chunks. Each chunk of data is represented as an Azure Blob Storage object.
