Our Cassandra Kafka Connect Sink is now DataStax and Confluent certified!
NoSQL stores are now an indispensable part of any architecture, the SMACK stack (Spark, Mesos, Akka, Cassandra and Kafka) is becoming increasing popular. Its demonstrated scalability and its high write throughput makes it the perfect partner to handle the flood of time series, IoT and industrial scale streams or financial data. This made Apache Cassandra an obvious choice as a Kafka Connect sink.
Joshua Ratha, product owner of the Data Hub and trader at Eneco Energy Trade, says:
“As a utility and trading company we deal with lots of time series. Think of gas and power prices, steering of assets, forecasting the energy supply and demand of our assets and client portfolio at any given moment of the day. We want to interact with this information stream, to be responsive to what happens in the energy markets and analyze it historically to see patterns, learn and improve. This is why an architecture with both Confluent and Cassandra serves us well. At Eneco we are proud of our contribution to the Cassandra connector in collaboration with Datamountaineer.”
