Apache Kafka Review
The speed at which it publishes messages is valuable.

Valuable Features:

Excellent speeds for publishing messages faster.

Room for Improvement:

Too much dependency on the zookeeper and leader selection is still the bottleneck for Kafka implementation.

Scalability Issues:

RESTful API implementation actually uses the Kafka Broker to publish the messages but I am not able to find it becoming scalable. Partially, the reason might be there is no load balancer for the RESTful API web server.

Initial Setup:

Setup is very much straightforward for development, and cluster setup is also easy. I am not aware of the production setup yet.

Implementation Team:

I implemented it on my own.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
