Abstract As part of the UK's in-kind contribution to the European Spallation Source, ISIS is working alongside the ESS and other partners to develop a new data streaming system for managing and distributing neutron experiment data. The new data streaming system is based on the open-source distributed streaming platform Apache Kafka. A central requirement of the system is to be able to supply live experiment data for processing and visualisation in near real-time via the Mantid data analysis framework. There already exists a basic TCP socket-based data streaming system at ISIS, but it has limitations in terms of scalability, reliability and functionality. The intention is for the new Kafka-based system to replace the existing system at ISIS. This migration will not only provide enhanced functionality for ISIS but also an opportunity for developing and testing the system prior to use at the ESS.
