fshort: Hi, I’m looking to integrate Camunda with Kafka for event processing and had a question about storing the events and workflow state persistence. From a Camunda perspective, is the state of the workflow managed in a separate DB and the events and tasks for the workflow stored in Kafka topics? Or, is it possible to eliminate the DB entirely and run everything out of Kafka?
zell: Hey @fshort Zeebe uses http://rocksdb.org/|RocksDB to store the processing state and commands which are processed and resulting events are written to an append only log. There is no dependency to kafka, but sure you can rebuild it with kafka if you want. Hope this helps.
