Kafka Consulting

Kafka Consulting

Learn how to employ best practices for your teams’ Kafka deployments. Cloudurable has a range of consulting services and training to help you get the most out of Kafka from architecture to help with setting up health checks.

The Apache Kafka distributed streaming platform is one of the most powerful and widely used reliable streaming platforms. Kafka is a fault tolerant, highly scalable and used for log aggregation, stream processing, event sources and commit logs.

If you are new to Apache Kafka, Cloudurable has mentoring, consulting, and training to help you get the most of the Kafka streaming data platform. Our professional services teams can support you designing a real-time streaming platform using Kafka. We can work shoulder to shoulder with your DevOps, Ops, and development team.

Learn about the best practices, trade-offs, and avoid costly pitfalls to ensure a successful Kafka deployment.

We specialize in setting up highly available Kafka clusters. We can help you pick the right durability and replication for your use case, so you are not paying too much for system resources or not getting the availability and durability your application needs.

Do you need to setup Kafka in multiple regions or data centers for disaster recovery? We can help you setup MirrorMaker.

Cloudurable provides Kafka consulting.

We provide provide architectural analysis, mentoring, emergency performance tuning, training, subscription support for Kafka on AWS, and staff augmentation to help you get your Kafka projects off the ground.

We specialize in Kafka AWS deployments, but can help you with all of your Kafka needs.

Kafka AWS Consulting

We specialize in Kafka AWS deployments. Up to 13 of Kafka deployments are on AWS. We can help you setup AWS and Kafka. We can also do custom development with Kafka. We provide Kafka consulting, architectural analysis, mentoring, training, and staff augmentation.

We also have certified AWS consultants that can help you setup the right AWS Cloud infrastructure for your Kafka deployments on AWS. We can even help you push metrics and logs into AWS CloudWatch so you can get dashboards and handle alerts proactively. We can assist you with your complete Kafka deployment plan from CloudFormation to MirrorMaker. If you pick the right AWS compute options to match your use case, the cost reduction can be significant. Setting up AWS to encrypt data at rest using KMS is free compared to the cost of doing data at rest encryption in Kafka itself. We can help you pick the right tools for the job. If you are using both AWS and Kafka, let our combined experience with these technologies guide you.

Kafka Microservices

Kafka is a key-ingredient in microservices development. It helps move you away from slow and unresponsive shared-state architectures with its abundance of cascading failures to in-memory actors systems done in Kafka streams, QBit and Akka. We can show you how to set up the Kafka streaming platform as part of your high-speed, reactive microservices architecture. Technology stacks like Kafka, Akka and QBit are the backbone for event driven microservices.

Let us help you set up a solid foundation in the architecture and data model of the Kafka Streaming Platform and how to deploy it correctly based on your use cases to AWS.
