Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Streaming service is a great alternative to Apache Kafka in the OCI environment. It is a fully managed service so maintenance, security patching, replication, monitoring and metrics are literally one click away from your OCI console. Connecting to OCI Streaming with Helidon is as easy as connecting to Kafka, or actually it is quite the same because OCI Streaming understands Kafka clients.
Streams are organized in the logical groups called StreamPools. When connecting to OCI Streaming with Kafka client, Streams are handled as Kafka topics and StreamPools as virtual Kafka clusters. If you configure Auto Create Topics to true in your StreamPool, it is equivalent of using auto.create.topics.enable=true in Apache Kafka. Read the complete article here.
