Building a Secure, Tamper-Proof & Scalable Blockchain on Top of Apache Kafka - Introduction to AiB's KafkaBlockchain

Apache Kafka is an open source event streaming platform. It is often used to complement or even replace existing middleware to integrate applications and build microservice architectures. Apache Kafka is already used in various projects in almost every bigger company today. Understood, battled-tested, highly scalable, reliable, real-time. Blockchain is a different story. This technology is a lot in the news, especially related to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. But what is the added value for software architectures? Is blockchain just hype and adds complexity? Or will it be used by everybody in the future, like a web browser or mobile app today? And how is it related to an integration architecture and event streaming platform? This session explores use cases for blockchains and discusses different alternatives such as Hyperledger, Ethereum and a Kafka-native tamper-proof blockchain implementation. Different architectures are discussed to understand when blockchain really adds value and how it can be combined with the Apache Kafka ecosystem to integrate blockchain with the rest of the enterprise architecture to build a highly scalable and reliable event streaming infrastructure.
