What is Event Streaming?

Event streaming is capturing and moving data from producers of data (microservices, consumer apps, IoT devices, etc.) to consumers of the data (other microservices, databases, apps). Messaging and streaming platforms are used to manage event streaming data.

What is Apache Pulsar?

Pulsar​ is a cloud-native, distributed messaging and streaming platform that manages hundreds of billions of events per day. Apache Pulsar has evolved extensively since its inception to meet the needs of real-time streaming use cases, including data pipelines and stream processing.

What is Apache Pulsar typically used for?

Common use cases are:

  1. Microservices use Apache Pulsar to communicate events and share states amongst them.
  2. Applications use Apache Pulsar to stay updated and consume data in real time.
  3. Data scientists use Pulsar to capture all events, process the data from the events, and build predictive models for insights and decisions
  4. Sensors & IoT devices stream raw sensor data from millions of devices with millions of readings per second using Apache Pulsar, and enrich that data with contextual information.

What are the benefits of Apache Pulsar compared to other event streaming platforms?

Pulsar is cloud-native, supports multi-data center active/active configurations, and is much easier to scale.
