Introduction to IBM Events Streams (Kafka) with Cloud Pak for Integration

IBM Event Streams is is a high-throughput message bus, a fully managed service built with the open source Apache Kafka project. It is available as part of the Cloud Pak for Integration. Event Streams is optimized for event ingestion into event stream distribution between your services and applications. Event Streams supports all of the Kafka APIs including Kafka Streams and Kafka Connect. It leverages the availability zone support from the Kubernetes Service to ensure that in an unlikely event of an entire zone being unavailable, your applications will continue to work uninterrupted.

IBM Cloud Pak for Integration (CP4I) offers a single unified platform for your integration needs: API lifecycle, application and data integration, enterprise messaging, event streaming and high-speed data transfer. It is ideal for integration projects and innovation deploying integration capabilities (API Connect, APP Connect, MQ, IBM Event Streams, Aspera and DataPower) easily and simply on Red Hat OpenShift environment almost anywhere: on any public cloud, private cloud, and also on premises. Cloud. To learn more about CP4I, we recommend joining our workshop Introduction to Cloud Pak for Integration. 

Event Streams benefits from well designed UIs to ensure that you are able to understand core Apache Kafka concepts and to deploy your first Event Streams application in minutes, not hours.
