Stream millions of events per second
Azure Event Hubs is a hyper-scale telemetry ingestion service that collects, transforms, and stores millions of events. As a distributed streaming platform, it offers low latency and configurable time retention enabling you to ingress massive amounts of telemetry into the cloud and read the data from multiple applications using publish-subscribe semantics.
Process real-time and batch on the same stream
With the Event Hubs Archive feature a single stream can support both real-time and batch based pipelines, reducing the complexity of your solution. You can build for today’s batch processing on a platform that supports tomorrow’s real-time analytics and processing. Event Hubs Archive is the easiest way to load data into Azure.
Leverage a fully-managed Platform as a Service
Event Hubs is a fully managed service, there are no servers to maintain and no software licenses to acquire. Pricing is simple and easy to predict. Event Hubs lets you focus on getting value from your telemetry rather than on gathering the data.
Handle volume, variety, and velocity
Big data defines today’s connected world. Big data originates from many sources with variable load profiles, such as thermostats that produce telemetry data every few minutes, application performance counters that generate events every second, and mobile apps that capture telemetry for every user’s individual action. Event Hubs is a fully managed service that ingests events with elastic scale to accommodate variable load profiles and the spikes.
Develop cross platform with support for many languages
Event Hubs uses the AMQP protocol to enable interoperability and binary compatibility across platforms while also supporting HTTPS for data ingress. With native clients in Java and .NET, it is easy to get started with Event Hubs and you can integrate with other Azure services including Stream Analytics, Functions, and Virtual Machines. There is also a strong open source community around Event Hubs that is continually creating new adapters and connectors for popular platforms such as NiFi and the ELK stack.
