Message Hub is built with the open source Apache Kafka project. As a result, it directly benefits from all the innovation occurring in the community. Our fully managed service supports the Kafka client APIs, Kafka Streams, Kafka Connect, and also KSQL.
IBM Cloud Functions
Message Hub is available as an event producer and consumer for IBM Cloud Functions. This support allows you to use Message Hub as an event provider to trigger an action, and as a consumer of any output.
IBM Watson IoT Platform
Message Hub has managed connectivity to IBM Watson IoT Platform. This support allows you to use Message Hub as an event pipeline to consume your device events from the Watson IoT Platform and make them available in real time to the rest of the platform.
IBM Cloud Object Storage
This support means you can use events within Message Hub for your event driven applications, while continuously sending them to be stored by the Cloud Object Storage service. This is a common pattern for supporting real time and batch analytics of events.
