Using Kafka to stream data into TigerGraph, a distributed graph database, is a common pattern in our customers’ data architecture. In the TigerGraph database, Kafka Connect framework was used to build the native S3 data loader. In TigerGraph Cloud, we will be building native integration with many data sources such as Azure Blob Storage and Google Cloud Storage using Kafka as an integrated component for the Cloud Portal. In this session, we will be discussing both architectures: 1. built-in Kafka Connect framework within TigerGraph database; 2. using Kafka cluster for cloud native integration with other popular data sources. Demo will be provided for both data streaming processes.
