Today StreamNative announces the release of the AMQP 1.0 connector for Apache Pulsar. This connector enables seamless integration between the Pulsar ecosystem and AMQP. If you are an organization looking to deploy reactive data pipelines, try it out!

What is the AMQP 1.0 connector?

The AMQP 1.0 connector (AMQP1_0) enables your application to publish and consume data using the AMQP 1.0-compliant broker and move data bi-directionally between Pulsar and AMQP service. The Pulsar IO framework allows you to read data from Pulsar or write data to Pulsar using source and sink.

  • AMQP 1.0 source
  • This source feeds data from AMQP 1.0 and persists data to Pulsar topics.

Why did StreamNative develop the AMQP 1.0 connector?

Pulsar and AMQP are at the heart of modern cloud architectures.

As one of the leading open-source distributed messaging systems, Pulsar unifies streaming and queuing capabilities and provides a broad set of features and functionalities all in one system.

AMQP 1.0 is one of the most efficient and reliable messaging protocols, allowing you to construct cross-platform and message-based applications with the vendor-agnostic and implementation-neutral protocol.

Both Pulsar and AMQP have grown rapidly in recent years. Pulsar has received global adoptions from top tech companies such as Yahoo! JAPAN, Verizon Media, Splunk, Iterable, Tencent, just to name a few. AMQP is widely adopted by leading organizations such as Google, Microsoft, IBM, Red Hat, and more. Many users want to leverage both the benefits of Pulsar and AMQP and we have received requests from a number of our customers looking for an integration between Pulsar and AMQP.

Why use the AMQP 1.0 connector?

Built to deploy integrations between Pulsar and AMQP quickly, securely, and reliably, the AMQP 1.0 connector brings various advantages, including but not limited to:

  • Simplicity
  • This connector simplifies integration for organizations who want to bring Pulsar into their existing infrastructure. It empowers organizations to move data in and out of Pulsar without writing a single line of code.
  • Scalability
  • This connector is able to run jobs on a single node (standalone) or deliver reliability at scale for an entire organization (distributed), which allows you to build reactive data pipelines to serve your business and operational needs in real-time.
  • Sustainability
  • Taking advantage of the full power of this connector enables you to spend less time worrying about the data layer and have more time to maximize business value from living data in an efficient manner.
