WARNING! The Stark & Wayne Kafka™ for Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) tile is currently in beta and is intended for evaluation and test purposes only. Do not use this product in a PCF production environment.
The Stark & Wayne Kafka™ for PCF brings Apache Kafka™ to the PCF Platform. Apache Kafka™ is used for building real-time data pipelines and streaming apps. It is horizontally scalable, fault-tolerant, highly responsive, and runs in production in thousands of companies.
The Stark & Wayne Kafka™ tile brings Kafka to everyone in your organization. Each service instance is a Kafka topic to which an app can subscribe or publish.
Stark & Wayne Kafka is the most approachable way to leverage Apache Kafka™ on PCF. Easily provision your infrastructure to provide Kafka to your developers. The tile includes ZooKeeper, which manages Kafka’s health.
The tile also includes a Spark integration.
Take a look at the Kafka use cases to figure out how you can extend your app.
