Change Data Capture with Kafka Connect and Cassandra

Paul Brebner picks up where a series left off:

We introduced the Debezium architecture and its use of Kafka Connect and explored how the Debezium Cassandra Connector (on the source side of the CDC pipeline) emits change events to Kafka for different database operations. 

In the second part of this blog series, we examine how Kafka sink connectors can use the change data, discover that Debezium also propagates database schema changes (in different ways), and summarize our experiences with the Debezium Cassandra Connector used for customer deployment. 

Read on for information on some of the concepts, as well as experiences working with the Debezium Cassandra connector.
