Kafka Connect for MapR Streams
Kafka Connect for MapR Streams is a utility for streaming data between MapR Streams and Apache Kafka and other storage systems.
Examples of other systems include:
- Relational databases
- Logs and metrics
- Hadoop and data warehouses
- NoSQL data stores
Kafka Connect for MapR Streams makes it easy to integrate all your data via Kafka, making it available as realtime streams. For example, you can use Kafka Connect for MapR Streams to:
- Stream changes from a relational database to make events available with low latency for stream processing applications.
- Import realtime logs and metrics into MapR Streams and process them to detect anomalies.
- Implement a process of loading data into MapR Streams from your primary data storage systems, performing filtering, transformations, and enrichment with a MapR Stream processing framework, and publish the data to MapR-FS.
