Imagine your team has faced a recent Kafka outage or needs to serve digital content across multiple regions. Then, imagine you have real-time customer orders that need to be handled and replicated to various teams across the world. Now imagine you have to prevent both (1) data loss and (2) duplication of that data, such as with customer orders.

This interactive talk will have members of the audience send multiple text messages to a server connected to Kafka. Then, in the middle of the exercise, the Kafka server will shut off – creating what most organizations would generously call a clusterf***. The session will show how you can recover from such a predicament using resilience engineering with Kafka’s MirrorMaker 2.0 and smart application workflows.

Key session takeaways include:

- How to ensure disaster recovery when using Kafka
- How to duplicate records
- How to use MirrorMaker 2.0 like a pro
