Apache Kafka Review
We use it for reactive architecture, track and trace, mail and parcel.

  • Supports more than 10,000 events/second.
  • Scalability
  • Replication

It is a good product for event-driven architecture.

We use Kafka for reactive architecture, track and trace, mail and parcel.

Room for Improvement:

A good free monitor tool would be great for Apache Kafka (from Apache foundation).

We have not encountered any scalability issues.

Previous Solutions:

Apache MQ is different. It is a message bus (log rotate) than can manage more than 10,000 events/sec.

Initial Setup:

The basic configuration is quite good. We have built a Hadoop cluster and the Kafka service was included.

Cost and Licensing Advice:

We use a community version.

Other Advice:

Kafka processes asynchronous exchanges, so there are no transactional interactions.
