Evaluating and Selecting Appropriate Technologies and Tools for Data Ingestion: Apache Kafka and Custom - Built Solutions

Fasihuddin Mirza [6]


Abstract: The landscape of data ingestion technologies is rapidly evolving to meet the growing demands of big data analytics. As organizations strive to gain real - time insights from their data, the need for robust, scalable, and efficient data ingestion platforms has never been more critical. This paper presents a comprehensive evaluation of Apache Kafka, a prominent open - source streaming platform, against custom - built data ingestion solutions. We examine the scalability, performance, fault tolerance, and ease of integration of these technologies. A systematic approach is employed to evaluate their suitability for various use cases, including high - throughput systems, IoT environments, and real - time analytics.
