Extending Kafka Across the Web
Despite its power inside the datacenter, Kafka is not optimized for clients outside of it. kaazing.io seamlessly connects to a Kafka instance and subscribes to messages that need to be delivered over the web. Then, using Server Sent Events (SSE) it streams these message to either browsers or mobile apps. Because SSE is an HTML5 standard, exisiting and new apps are extremely easy to set up to receive these live streams of data.
kaazing.io’s simplicity does not mean though that its compromised on features. Advanced security capabilities include end-to-end encryption and access control (set which app users receive which data) while performance innovations ensure that no matter what, users will receive, the right data, at the right time in the right form. Building a secure, realtime app that can handle massive scale has never been so easy.
