Oracle recently made their ‘Kafka on Cloud’ service available: the Event Hub cloud service – offered as part of the Big Data Compute Cloud Service. In this article, I will briefly show the steps I went through to get up and running with this service. To be frank, it was not entirely intuitive – so this may be handy the next time I have to do it or perhaps when you are struggling. One obvious point of confusion is the overloaded use of the ‘service’ – which is applied among others for Kafka Topics.

The steps are:

  1. Initialize the Oracle BigData Compute CS | Oracle Event Hub Cloud Service – Platform – -expose REST Proxy
  2. Create Network Access Rule to enable access to the Event Hub Platform instance from the public internet
  3. Create a Event Hub service instance on the Event Hub Platform – corresponding to a Kafka Topic
  4. Inspect Event Hub using PSM
  5. Interact with Event Hub through CURL
  6. Create application (e.g. NodeJS) to access the Event Hub Service (aka Kafka Topic): produce message, create consumer, consume messages (through the REST proxy) – discussed in a subsequent blog article

Initialize the Oracle BigData Compute CS | Oracle Event Hub Cloud Service – Platform – -expose REST Proxy

From the Dashboard, open the BigData Compute Cloud Service. Open the dropdown menu. Select option Oracle Event Hub Cloud Service – Platform. Read the complete article here.
