Aiven workshop: Learn Apache Kafka with Python

What's in the Workshop Recipe? Apache Kafka is the industry de-facto standard for data streaming. An open-source, scalable, highly available and reliable solution to move data across companies' departments, technologies or micro-services. In this workshop you'll learn the basics components of Apache Kafka and how to get started with data streaming using Python. We'll dive deep, with the help of some prebuilt Jupyter notebooks, on how to produce, consume and have concurrent applications reading from the same source, empowering multiple use-cases with the same streaming data.

Explore Apache Kafka Tiered Storage

Get an introduction to Apache Kafka® Tiered Storage which enables more effective data management by utilizing two different storage types—local disk and remote cloud storage solutions such as Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, and Azure Blob Storage. This feature offers a tailored approach to data storage, allowing you to allocate frequently accessed data to high-speed local disks while offloading less critical or infrequently accessed data to more cost-effective remote storage solutions. Tiered storage enables you to indefinitely store data on specific topics without running out of space. Once enabled, it is configured per topic, giving you granular control over data storage needs.
