Real-time connectivity of databases and systems is critical in enterprises adopting Digital Transformation to support super-fast decisioning to drive applications like fraud detection, digital payments and recommendation engines. This requires real-time data movement from the edge to the core and back. Aerospike Connect for Kafka addresses these requirements by supporting real-time data exchange between the Aerospike database and enterprise transactional systems at the edge and core.
How it works
Aerospike Connect for Kafka leverages the new XDR protocol in Aerospike 5 for higher performance at scale in enterprise Kafka-based streaming pipelines. This integration enables Aerospike Database 5 to pull data from Kafka and to submit Aerospike change notifications via the Aerospike XDR protocol to Kafka.
