Apache Kafka REST proxy
When building solutions that need to ingest a high volume of requests and messages via HTTP, such as web events, clicks, etc., an extra layer or HTTP proxy is required to route these messages to Apache Kafka. Commonly, this is achieved through API gateways or AWS Lambda, but these solutions require additional work for building and managing them. To streamline this process, we have added REST proxy endpoints functionality to each Kafka node. You can activate this feature during creation or modify existing clusters to include it. Simply check the box in the advanced settings, and we will manage the REST for you.
This is one of the building blocks that facilitates the construction of solutions such as analytics for web, mobile, and gaming applications which we see our customers developing using our services on DoubleCloud.
Support of ClickHouse ver 23.6
We added ClickHouse version 23.6. Besides the huge list of improvements and changes, we noted that ClickHouse has an interesting new feature: Redis as a Table engine. You can now read and write to a Redis cluster directly from ClickHouse without the need to pipe data through your application.
