Apache Kafka on AWS: Amazon MSK

August 30, 2019
Apache Kafka is one of the most popular open-source projects for building messaging and streaming applications. Kafka takes data from various sources, makes it available to different applications, and therefore helps to eliminate daily batch jobs. Kafka also plays an important role for Change Data Capture (CDC) and in the world of microservices. This presentation gives an overview of the new Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka: Amazon MSK. Based on knowledge gained from several Kafka implementation projects I will explain some of the technical underpinnings first. You will learn about brokers, topics, and Zookeeper. Then I will explain what makes Kafka special, analyse major pain points in on-prem Apache Kafka projects, and conclude why the cloud is the best way to use Kafka. We will show many of the new features of Amazon MSK, such as provisioning Kafka clusters, the Kafka CLI, CloudFormation, extending storage, integration of broker and topic monitoring with CloudWatch and many more. Speaker: Frank Munz, Technical Evangelist, AWS Level: 300 (Advanced)
