Fully managed and scalable modernized data streaming platform

Aug 17, 2022 by Bal Heroor

Streaming services must ensure that their data is secure, highly available, and accessible. Apache Kafka can deliver on that promise. That's why it's the most popular open-source stream-processing software for collecting, processing, storing, and analyzing data at scale. 
But Apache Kafka clusters are challenging to set up, scale, and manage in production. And when you run Apache Kafka on your own, you need to provision servers, configure Apache Kafka manually, replace servers when they fail, and orchestrate server patches and upgrades—the list goes on and on. 
Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (Amazon MSK) eliminates these complexities, offering you a fully managed, serverless, cloud-based service. Mactores help you get to those benefits faster.
Cost-effective streaming, simplified
Securely stream data with the Amazon MSK highly available Managed Apache Kafka service. By driving best practices through design, strategy, and automation, Amazon MSK eliminates operational overhead, including the provisioning, configuration, and maintenance of highly available Apache Kafka and Kafka Connect clusters. You can use applications and tools built for Apache Kafka out of the box, with no code changes required, and scale cluster capacity automatically. 
The platform lets you quickly deploy secure, compliant, and production-ready applications using native AWS integrations. And it contains costs with pay-as-you-go pricing as low as 1/13 of the price of other providers. But migrating to Amazon MSK is a challenge, often taking months or even years to migrate out of Apache Kafka. That's where Mactores comes in, by de-risking and accelerating your Amazon MSK migration while letting your developers focus on application development instead of the tedium of strategizing your Apache Kafka migration.

The Mactores MSK Migration Accelerator is built on the Mactores Aedeon Data Lake framework and other frameworks, including Apache Kafka. Aedeon Data Lake is offered on Apache Kafka or Amazon MSK as a fully managed solution and service, speeding up your data platform's assessment, migration, and modernization process. That lets you take advantage of Amazon MSK sooner. It simplifies migration for you by lifting the data conversion load off your IT team.
During the assessment phase of migration, Mactores verifies your current deployment and integrations to your Apache Kafka landscape, then works with you to meet performance, scalability, and security requirements. And, because Aedeon Data Lake DataOps gives you more visibility into your data, you can be certain that you'll get timely alerts. Most importantly, the Mactores MSK Migration Accelerator can migrate your existing Apache Kafka implementation—including integrations with Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka—in about a week, not months or years.
