Apache Kafka has become the most popular open-source solution for persistent replicated messaging in the Hadoop ecosystem. But some software engineers who are working with “big data” don’t want to deal with the configuration and set up of Kafka.

Dan Rosanova is today’s guest. He joins us to discuss persistent replicated messaging, and the features that Azure Event Hubs provide. This is an interesting discussion about distributed pub sub messaging, and we also get into a great conversation about platform as a service versus open source software, and the future of cloud software.
