As part of our ongoing Data Vault Friday series, our CEO Michael Olschimke delves into a pertinent question posed by a member of our audience.

“I would be interested in some ideas about how to load data from Apache Kafka. In our case, we receive CDC data from DB servers over Apache Kafka.

One specific concern raised is about maintaining the correct sequence of data in Raw Vault when dealing with different partitions in a Kafka topic. This becomes particularly crucial in scenarios involving Change Data Capture (CDC) from database servers.”

In this enlightening video, Michael provides insightful ideas and strategies for effectively loading data from Apache Kafka while ensuring the integrity of the sequence in the Raw Vault. He tackles the nuances of handling different partitions within a Kafka topic, offering practical guidance to address challenges associated with maintaining data order.

For those navigating the intricacies of data loading from Apache Kafka, this video provides valuable insights and solutions.
