Kafka Connect Azure Data Lake Gen1 Sink

The Azure Data Lake Gen1 Sink Connector integrates Azure Data Lake Gen1 with Apache Kafka. The connector can export data from Apache Kafka® topics to Azure Data Lake Gen1 files in either Avro or JSON formats. Depending on your environment, the Azure Data Lake Gen1 connector can export data by guaranteeing exactly-once delivery semantics to consumers of the Azure Data Lake Gen1 files it produces.

The Azure Data Lake Gen1 sink connector periodically polls data from Kafka and in turn uploads it to Azure Data Lake Gen1. A partitioner is used to split the data of every Kafka partition into chunks. Each chunk of data is represented as an Azure Data Lake Gen1 file.
