Apache Kafka is a publish-subscribe messaging system. Kafka runs as a cluster comprised of one or more servers each of which is called a broker. Kafka brokers process data in the form of messages, publishes the messages to a topic, subscribes the messages from a topic, and then writes it to the Kafka target.
You can use the Kafka data object write operation as a target. If you want to configure high availability for the mapping, ensure that the Kafka cluster is highly available.
Support to write the batch data to a Kafka target in Big Data Management is available for technical preview. Technical preview functionality is supported but is unwarranted and is not production-ready. Informatica recommends that you use in non-production environments only.
