Kafka and HPE NonStop – A Perfect Combo!

March 2022 (Great Neck, NY)

One of the best ways to modernize NonStop is to integrate its applications with other software, platforms and cloud services. This interoperability is extremely important as it will extend the value of the NonStop applications, and underscore the flexibility of the platform in the enterprise. Over the past few years, one of the most popular tools that have been adopted by many corporations is Apache Kafka.
