Moving data from Kafka to HANA (via Kafka Connect / JDBC)

430 Views

Hello all

Let's assume I want to connect HANA and Kafka via Kafka Connect (not Streaming Analytics/SDS or DataHub, or something similar), there seem to be mainly two options:

- Kafka Connect JDBC
- Kafka Connect for HANA from SAP: https://github.com/SAP/kafka-connect-sap

What I am not sure about is why should I choose on or the other? Both seem to use the HANA JDBC driver. The one from Confluent is officialy supported, while the one from SAP seems to be "no support, use at your own risk".

What are the "unique selling points" of using the code from github, compared to the Confluent supported JDBC Kafka connect?
