Apache Kafka Review

It eases our current data flow and framework

What is our primary use case?

It's convenient and flexible for almost all kinds of data producers. We integrated it with Kafka Streams, which can perform some easy data processing, like summary, count, group, etc

How has it helped my organization?

It eases our current data flow and framework, which digests all types of sources regardless of it being structured or not.

What is most valuable?

  • High availability
  • High throughput

With such a large digest, I was genuinely impressed at the process being almost real-time.

What needs improvement?

Kafka 2.0 has been released for over a month, and I wanted to try out the new features. However, the configuration is a little bit complicated: Kafka Broker, Kafka Manager, ZooKeeper Servers, etc.

For how long have I used the solution?

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