Kafka to Snowflake in minutes
Apache Kafka is a popular open-sourced event-streaming platform.
It’s focused on allowing enterprises to use real-time data as the backbone of their operations. Kafka provides an event-based backbone for many Fortune 500 companies.
Snowflake is a cloud-based data warehouse that offers highly scalable and distributed SQL querying over large datasets.
Using OLAP (Online Analytical Processing), Snowflake offers the ability to rapidly answer multi-dimensional analytic database queries with potentially large reporting views by breaking each query up between many worker nodes and reassembling the finalized answer.
Estuary helps move data from
Kafka to Snowflake in minutes with millisecond latency.
Estuary builds free, open-source connectors to extract data from Kafka in real-time, allowing you to offload data to various systems for both analytical and operational purposes. Kafka data exists in a stream and often benefits from being organized into a data lake or placed into a warehouse for analysis with history.
Data can be directed to Snowflake using open-source materialization connectors. Connectors have the ability to keep warehouses as up-to-date as the warehouse can handle. This allows Snowflake to receive data with 30 seconds to a minute of latency.
