Why Use Apache Kafka® to Migrate to the Cloud

Migrating to the Cloud?

Every organization is planning or considering a migration to the cloud. While the benefits of cloud computing encompass improved efficiency, flexibility, major cost savings, and access to enterprise grade technology, cloud migrations are complicated. There is significant evidence that cloud migrations aren't a one-time, 2-month project, but rather an ongoing process that can last multiple years. So where’s the best place to start?

In this white paper, Principal Data Architect, Gwen Shapira shares a successful cloud migration strategy using Apache Kafka to:

  • Reduce costs, accelerate migration times and streamline the cloud migration process
  • Implement a central data pipeline architecture using Apache Kafka®
  • Sync both on-prem and cloud deployments
