Kinesis to Kafka in minutes
Amazon Kinesis is a managed service offered by Amazon that aims to make it easy to collect, process, and analyze streaming data.
Kinesis is a popular choice for streaming backbones because it’s in the AWS ecostystem and relatively simple to set up compared to other data streaming options.
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.
Estuary helps move data from
Kinesis to Kafka in minutes with millisecond latency.
Estuary builds free, open-source connectors to extract data from Kinesis with millisecond latency, allowing you to replicate that data to various systems for both analytical and operational purposes. Kinesis data exists in a stream and often benefits from being organized into a data lake or warehosue for analytics with history.
Data can then be directed to Kafka using materializations that are also open-source, streaming to Kafka with millisecond latency.
