VoltDB Releases Confluent Certified Connector for Apache Kafka™

Empowers enterprises with fast data and big data analysis, driving smarter, faster, more profitable decisions

BEDFORD, Mass., Nov. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- VoltDB, the only database purpose-built for fast data applications, today announced it has partnered with Confluent and completed development and certification of its Sink Connector for Confluent Open Source, based on Apache Kafka, utilizing Kafka's Connect API.  

VoltDB

VoltDB's Sink Connector ingests data from Apache Kafka topics and streams it into VoltDB for real-time analytics and action on the data, enabling organizations to derive value from both real-time data and long-term big data architectures. By ingesting real-time data streams from Apache Kafka and providing a means for analysis and action on incoming data, VoltDB enables applications to make smart decisions with millisecond response times and full consistency to increase high-value interactions with customers.

As a Confluent Partner Program member, VoltDB provides its customers who use Apache Kafka and Confluent to develop robust data connectivity based on Kafka's Connect API, easily build stream processing applications with the streams API in Kafka, and promote solutions to customers worldwide.

"By becoming a Confluent partner, VoltDB is enabling customers to capitalize on streaming data with Apache Kafka to power real-time decision making," said Jabari Norton, vice president of business development at Confluent. "As we work to put streaming platforms at the heart of every company, we welcome partners who share this vision and help customers become successful in this real-time world."

"The ability to perform deep analytics on historical data and reduce the time to insights has transformed how businesses make decisions, interact with their customers and compete. However, as more analytics are performed in real time, they must be integrated with applications to create value and action - the ability to execute. If you are not acting at the rate you are gaining insights, you are missing opportunities," said Mike Pogany, VP of strategic business development, VoltDB. "Confluent's streaming platform, along with VoltDB, creates a data architecture that empowers enterprises to act in real time to improve business outcomes."
