Event Stream Processing

Read and write events, such as Kafka® events

When you install the Streaming Data Framework for MATLAB® Production Server™, you can:

  • Read and write event streams from an event streaming platform, such as Kafka.

  • Simulate the production environment for testing your streaming analytic algorithms. (Requires MATLAB Compiler SDK™)

  • Scale your streaming analytic algorithms by deploying them. (Requires MATLAB Production Server)

Install the Streaming Data Framework for MATLAB Production Server support package from the MATLAB Add-On Explorer. For information about installing add-ons, see Get and Manage Add-Ons (MATLAB).
