Apache Kafka for the hybrid IoT

Start Date: THURSDAY,March 21, 2019

Start Time: 12:00 PM EST

Duration:30 minutes


Tons of devices to supervise the environment connected to the cloud, tons of data to take in as a river in flood, tons of messages to process for getting information from them. This is where IoT data streaming comes in—with the need to analyze this unbounded dataset in real time and react to events. At the same time, controlling these devices at the edge is a crucial part of the overall solution, but just one technology isn’t enough anymore. During this session, we’ll see how it’s possible to use Apache Kafka together with a “traditional” messaging protocol like AMQP 1.0, getting the strengths from both, for making the hybrid IoT a reality.
