Host Tim Berglund (Senior Director of Developer Experience, Confluent) and guests unpack a variety of topics surrounding Apache Kafka, event stream processing and real-time data.

Multi-Tenancy in Apache Kafka ft. Anna Pozvner
Anna Povzner kicks off the conversation with Tim Berglund by explaining what multi-tenancy is, why it is worthy to be desired, and advantages over single-tenant architecture.
