Subject Re: Storing Kafka Message JSON to deep storage like S3
Date Tue, 06 Dec 2016 11:55:36 GMT
I just meant that is there an existing tool which does that. Basically I
tell it "Listen to all X streams and write them to S3/HDFS at Y path as
JSON". I know spark streaming can be used and there is flume. But I am not
sure about their scalability/reliability. That's why I thought to initiate
a discussion here to see whether someone knows about that already.
