uLinga For Kafka. A Different Approach

Modernization Through Integration

Apache Kafka is an open-source distributed events streaming platform used by many corporations for data integration, streaming analytics, log analysis and other mission critical applications in a high performance and fault-tolerant environment.


Now, with uLinga for Kafka from Infrasoft, a NonStop application can publish NonStop events and data to Kafka clusters to be picked up by any consuming subscribers on any platforms.

uLinga for Kafka is a NonStop based solution and requires no additional software or hardware components.


Kafka provides these functionalities and benefits to its users:

  • Publish and subscribe to data.

  • Store data in the order they were generated efficiently.

  • Real-time / On-the-fly processing of data.

  • Built-in fault tolerance and high performance

Sample NonStop Use Cases:

  • Publish NonStop application logs or system events to Kafka to be real time analysis by off platform tools such as Splunk

  • Push NonStop data changes to other database platforms such as SQL Server or Oracle

  • Asynchronous messaging interface to applications on other platforms such as Windows or Linux

  • Publish NonStop applications or data to stay in sync with Cloud Services

Three Easy Ways to Publish to Kafka
  • Publish an event to Kafka can be done simply by a Pathsend or WRITE using uLinga IPCSERVER.

  • Capture data changes to disk and push data to Kafka easily using uLinga FILEREADER.

  • Route web requests to Kafka easily using uLinga’s HTTP Interface.
