In today’s business environment, with the rapidly increasing volume of data and the growing pressure to respond to events in real-time, organizations need data-driven strategies to gain valuable insights faster and increase their competitive advantage. To meet these big data challenges, you need a massively scalable distributed streaming platform that supports multiple producers and consumers, connecting data streams across your organization. Apache Kafka and Azure Event Hubs provide such distributed platforms.
We are excited to announce the general availability of Azure Event Hubs for Apache Kafka. With Azure Event Hubs for Apache Kafka, you get the best of both worlds—the ecosystem and tools of Kafka, along with Azure’s security and global scale.
