Managing Kafka event streams
IBM Event Streams is an event-streaming platform based on the open-source Apache Kafka project.
Get started with event streaming by logging in to the Event Streams UI and creating your first Kafka topic or finding connection details for your existing clients. You can also create a starter application to try out Kafka, run a workload generator to validate message throughput, or download JAR files to help you create Kafka client applications.
Managing secure access
Consider securing your Event Streams setup by managing the access each user and application has to each resource.
Defining data structure
Use schemas to define the structure of data in messages, so that both your producing and consuming applications can work with information that conforms to a predefined structure.
To help ensure your services are always available, synchronize data between your clusters by using the geo-replication feature. Geo-replication can be an important part of disaster recovery planning and mission-critical data backups.
