A Hitchhiker's Guide to Apache Kafka Geo-Replication
Date : April 26, 2022
Time : 11:00 AM - 11:45 AM

Many organizations use Apache Kafka® to build data pipelines that span multiple geographically distributed data centers, for use cases ranging from high availability and disaster recovery, to data aggregation and regulatory compliance. The journey from single-cluster deployments to multi-cluster deployments can be daunting, as you need to deal with networking configurations, security models and operational challenges. Geo-replication support for Kafka has come a long way, with both open-source and commercial solutions that support various replication topologies and disaster recovery strategies. So, grab your towel, and join us on this journey as we look at tools, practices, and patterns that can help us build reliable, scalable, secure, global (if not inter-galactic) data pipelines that meet your business needs, and might even save the world from certain destruction.
