Debezium Blog

In this article, we are going to present and demonstrate a new feature delivered in Debezium 2.4 - the integration with the TimescaleDB database.

TimescaleDB is an open-source database designed to make SQL scalable for time-series data. It is implemented as an extension for the PostgreSQL database. This fact leads us to re-use the standard Debezium PostgreSQL connector and implement TimescaleDB support as a single message transform (SMT).

In the realm of data streaming optimization, even subtle improvements can make a significant impact. This article focuses on one such refinement: the introduction of batch support in Debezium’s JDBC connector. We’ll guide you through the process of enabling batches and share the practical outcomes of our performance testing.

With Debezium 2.3, we introduced a preview of a brand new Debezium Operator with the aim to provide seamless deployment of Debezium Server to Kubernetes (k8s) clusters. The Debezium 2.4.0.Final release brings the next step towards the full support of this component. With this release, we are happy to announce that Debezium Operator is now available in the OperatorHub catalog for Kubernetes as well as in the community operator catalog embedded in the OpenShift and OKD distributions. The operator remains in the incubation phase; however, the full support of this component is approaching fast.

Welcome to the third installment of our series on Debezium Signaling and Notifications. In this article, we continue our exploration of Debezium signaling and notifications. In particular, we will delve into how to enable and manage these features using the JMX channel.

We will also explore how to send signals and get notifications through the REST API leveraging Jolokia.

Welcome to this series of articles dedicated to signaling and notifications in Debezium! This post serves as the second installment in the series, where we will discuss how to customize the signal and notification channels in Debezium.

Debezium 2.3 introduced new improvements in signaling and notification capabilities.
