Hazelcast, provider of an open source in-memory data grid (IMDG), has joined the Confluent Partner Program as a Technology Partner. Confluent provides a streaming platform based on Apache Kafka, and designed its partner program to foster ecosystem around Apache Kafka and Confluent.
Confluent focuses on building streaming platforms, which is an ideal fit for Hazelcast, said Greg Luck, CEO of Hazelcast, noting that this formal partnership will help strengthen Hazelcast’s capabilities on what it views as a critical platform.
To highlight the IoT application benefits that can be achieved from combining Kafka and Hazelcast IMDG, Confluent partner, DataMountaineer, has built a real-time, fast data integration that brings both technologies together to solve operational data management needs: the Kafka Connect Sink for Hazelcast IMDG. Specializing inthe Confluent Platform, DataMountaineer provides real-time data solutions for streaming and fast data platforms using the Kafka Connect API.
To process incoming IoT data, DataMountaineer has configured a Sink to write to Hazelcast IMDG. Hazelcast’s architecture and feature set allows it to receive high velocity writes for data storage, and perform distributed processing.
