Understand the use case

You can use an Apache NiFi data flow to ingest data into Cloudera Operational Database (COD) through Cloudera DataFlow. Learn how to use NiFi to move data from a range of locations to COD in CDP Public Cloud.

Today’s scalable web applications for use cases like hotel or flight bookings as well as mobile banking applications are relying on an equally scalable database which can serve data at a very low latency. COD in Cloudera DataFlow is powered by Apache HBase and provides application developers with everything they need to build scalable applications on top of it.

You can use Apache NiFi data flows into Apache HBase in a CDP Public Cloud Operational Database cluster to make sure that the applications you build on top always have access to the latest data.

In this topic, you view an example of ingesting data from a source Kafka topic to an HBase table in COD. There is a ReadyFlow in Cloudera DataFlow that ingests data from a Kafka topic to an HBase table in COD. This document describes how to use that ReadyFlow.
