Subject Re: Is Avro right for me?

Yes our central server would be Hadoop. 

Exactly how would this work with flume? Would I write Avro to a file source which flume would
then ship over to one of our collectors  or is there a better/native way? Would I have to
include the schema in each event? FYI we would be doing this primarily from a rails application.

Does anyone ever use Avro with a message bus like RabbitMQ?

so that schema evolution will be easier in the future.
