Matching the best streaming platform with the best database empowers you to easily perform complex work processes like data migration, IoT, and numerous others. MongoDB and Kafka make up the core of numerous advanced data architectures that assist developers with easily build robust, responsive data pipelines that stream events among applications and services in real time.

Named as a 'Leader' in a recent Q3 Forrester Wave Big Data NoSQL, MongoDB comes with strong functionalities and features. Manifold verticals, across all industries choose MongoDB for building a wide variety of applications delivering flexibility, scalability and performance.

It viably brings real-time data from across the enterprise to a database that can serve your APIs, services, and questions - bringing about quicker data access and speed up application development and improvement for a superior client experience.

Kafka has become incredibly well known in the past several years and is an amazing distributed event streaming platform equipped to take care of trillions of events in a day. It gives an adaptable and robust streaming platform, which helps empowering standardized communication between a wide range of data platforms, systems and frameworks.

The MongoDB and Confluent partnership matches the best streaming platform with the best database enabling you to deal with the most demanding responsibilities and workloads, for example, monstrous IoT sensor ingestion, complex work processes like data migration and data pipelines like those found in micro-service applications.
