Data ingestion from MapR Streams to Vertica

Can Vertica get the data from MapR Streams using Vertica's kafka-related components directly ?

Thanks in advance?

  • Hi Kaito

    I don't think this will work. While there is some compatibility between kafka & mapr streams, Vertica uses the low-level kafka consumer C API, and that not supported by mapr streams according to

    Beyond that, I see there are some other differences in semantics, such as the way offsets are managed (mapr streams starts at 1 vs 0 in kafka) and the way security is done. Those may not be deal breakers for you, but those differences would probably break some scheduler use cases.

    Is there any plan to Test this or support this?
