The AWS Solutions team recently updated AWS Streaming Data Solution for Amazon MSK, an AWS Solutions Implementation that provides an automated configuration of the AWS services necessary to easily capture, store, process, and deliver streaming data. This update adds a template that accelerates development of streaming data workloads by reducing the need for you to model and provision resources using AWS CloudFormation; set up Amazon CloudWatch alarms, dashboards, and logging; and manually implement streaming data best practices in AWS.

The newly introduced template deploys a reference architecture that streams data from an Amazon MSK cluster. The streaming data events are subsequently read by an Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics application and the output is stored in an Amazon S3 bucket. Also, it showcases the Apache Flink Table API, which allows you to interact with data in a stream using a relational model and exactly-once guarantees.

Additional AWS Solutions are available on the AWS Solutions Implementation webpage, where you can browse solutions by product category or industry to find AWS-vetted, automated, turnkey reference implementations that address specific business needs.
