What you can do with Azure Events Hubs

Real-time flexibility and scalability to work with gigabytes or event terabytes of your event data

Event Hubs for Kafka allow you to use Kafka applications to talk to event hubs without the need to configure or manage your Kafka clusters

A rich ecosystem with support for popular languages such as Java, Python, JavaScript, and .NET

You can ingest, store or buffer your event data streams in real-time to get valuable insights

In order to manually set up Azure Event Hubs, you would either have to use the Azure Stack or run your own Kafka clusters. Then, you will need to use their API to send events, in addition to managing errors and retrying sending any failed events.

RudderStack provides a simple alternative to this by offering seamless integration with Azure Event Hubs. It uses the Kafka endpoints provided by Azure Event Hubs to send the events in real-time.

How to set up Azure Event Hubs Integration

It’s very easy! Use our step-by-step guide to set up Azure Event Hubs as a destination in RudderStack, and get started in no time at all.


Use RudderStack to Send Event Data Into Azure Event Hubs

You can use RudderStack to send your event data along with its associated properties to Azure Event Hubs. Once you enable the integration, RudderStack will automatically collect all your event data from the specified sources and send it to the event hub in the desired format. This data can then be transformed and used for analytics by the provider as specified by you.

By Adding Azure Event Hubs Support for RudderStack, you can:

  • Implement a straightforward integration without the need for any additional installation or setup. All you need is the information regarding your bootstrap server, the name of the event hub and its connection string
  • Pick up events in real time for analytics or batch processing
  • Automatically send the data to Azure Event Hubs in a format that it expects, without having to worry about preprocessing the data
