Kafka In the Cloud: Why It’s 10x Better With Confluent | Get free eBook

Hybrid Kafka, Taking Real-time Analytics to the Business

Apache Kafka users who want to leverage Google Cloud Platform's (GCPs) data analytics platform and open source hosting capabilities can bridge their existing Kafka infrastructure on-premise or in other clouds to GCP using Confluent's replicator tool and managed Kafka service on GCP. Using actual customer examples and a reference architecture, we'll showcase how existing Kafka users can stream data to GCP and use it in popular tools like Apache Beam on Dataflow, BigQuery, Google Cloud Storage (GCS), Spark on Dataproc, and Tensorflow for data warehousing, data processing, data storage, and advanced analytics using AI and ML.
