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.
