The Solution

With Aiven, JobCloud was able to find a Kafka solution that provides flexibility and customizability but no setup or maintenance headaches. Aiven just takes all of that complexity away, allowing JobCloud to focus on product development.

There were fears to begin with. Some of the settings and authentication details were confusing at the start; and while Aiven works more with Java, JobCloud is a PHP house. “But it’s actually really cool. I’ve contacted Aiven support several times, and I’ve gotten a lot of help. I really feel like you guys want to help us out.”

Aiven for Kafka has been implemented exactly as Nick envisioned. It acts like a message bus, passing information between different systems. This way, a truly event-driven architecture can exist even when the component systems were designed in a different world. 

Nick also likes the range of integrations that Aiven has to offer. JobCloud makes extensive use of Grafana, integrated with Prometheus. In case something goes wrong, they’ve implemented a Slack integration to provide alarms for admins.

We’re really, really happy with the approach that we took, and that we chose Aiven as the provider.
