General availability: Event Hubs for Python
Published date: 04 September, 2018
Version 1.0 of the Python package for Azure Event Hubs is now generally available. Event Hubs queues can receive millions of events per second from sources like Azure IoT hubs, cloud application logs, and data analysis services like Azure HDInsight. And the queues can route these events to managed services like Azure Stream Analytics, Azure Functions, and Azure Cosmos DB. By using this new package, developers can send events from any Python application to Event Hubs and receive and handle events in Python applications and systems.
The new Event Hubs package is built on the AMQP protocol to support reliable connections, high throughput, and broad compatibility with projects like Apache ActiveMQ and Amazon MQ. It also includes an Event Processor Host framework for distributing and load-balancing event processing across several hosts.
