Apache Kafka becoming the message bus to transfer huge volumes of data from various sources into Hadoop.
It's also enabling many real-time system frameworks and use cases.
Managing and building clients around Apache Kafka can be challenging. In this talk, we will go through the best practices in deploying Apache Kafka
in production. How to Secure a Kafka Cluster, How to pick topic-partitions and upgrading to newer versions. Migrating to new Kafka Producer and Consumer API.
Also talk about the best practices involved in running a producer/consumer.
In Kafka 0.9 release, we’ve added SSL wire encryption, SASL/Kerberos for user authentication, and pluggable authorization. Now Kafka allows authentication of users, access control on who can read and write to a Kafka topic. Apache Ranger also uses pluggable authorization mechanism to centralize security for Kafka and other Hadoop ecosystem projects.
We will showcase open sourced Kafka REST API and an Admin UI that will help users in creating topics, re-assign partitions, Issuing
Kafka ACLs and monitoring Consumer offsets.
