Seamless API-first connectivity for all of your event-driven microservices & data. Directly interface web, IoT, hybrid IT apps and services to event-streams via native APIs.
Zilla provides a unified, stateless interface to event-driven services and data. It natively supports a range of network and messaging protocols, including Kafka. This enables it to directly interface to event-streams and expose them to non-Kafka clients over REST, SSE, gRPC or MQTT APIs. Web apps, IoT clients, and microservices can now publish and subscribe to Kafka topics via their own native APIs without the need for Kafka Connect, custom integration code or any other stateful intermediaries.
For apps and clients that can’t natively interface to Kafka event streams, a combination of Kafka Connect and intermediary web services or brokers is needed. This leads to increased latency, unnecessary data replication, a wider security surface area and an overall disjointed interface to event-driven architectures.
Kafka's performance & resilience benefits extended across the entire application stack.
Heavy Kafka integration middleware replaced by a single, stateless API layer.
Developers across teams accessing event-streams via their own APIs of choice.
Centralized authorization & authentication of all non-Kafka clients.
Respond to the real-world in real-time. Power all of your apps and services with event-streams.
Interface REST and gRPC services to event-streams with app specific API declarations, enabling them as first-class participants inside an event-driven architecture. Achieve a CQRS event-sourcing design pattern with minimal effort.
Leverage Kafka as an asynchronous backend for web and mobile clients. Extend event-streams across the internet or ingest end-user data directly into Kafka. Build live dashboards, geotracking, in-app chat and more, all without WebSocket servers or third-party pub/sub services.
Expose event-streams to external partners, securely and at scale. Go beyond a synchronous HTTP interface for your partner integration strategy.
Reduce redundant replication and lag by connecting MQTT clients directly to Kafka without intermediary MQTT brokers. Clients can publish and subscribe, which streamlines remote control and configuration.
