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 Data Engineering Integration is available for technical preview.
Technical preview functionality is supported for evaluation purposes but is unwarranted and is not supported in production environments or any environment that you plan to push to production. Informatica intends to include the preview functionality in an upcoming release for production use, but might choose not to in accordance with changing market or technical circumstances.
