NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the radarUnderstand more

Debezium is a change data capture (CDC) platform that can stream database changes onto Kafka topics. CDC is a popular technique with multiple use cases, including replicating data to other databases, feeding analytics systems, extracting microservices from monoliths and invalidating caches. We're always on the lookout for tools or platforms in this space (we talked about Bottled Water in a previous Radar) and Debezium is an excellent choice. It uses a log-based CDC approach which means it works by reacting to changes in the database's log files. Debezium uses Kafka Connect which makes it highly scalable and resilient to failures and has CDC connectors for multiple databases including Postgres, Mysql and MongoDB. We're using it in a few projects and it has worked very well for us.
