Apache Kafka Review

Enables us to move data from static files to a legacy system

What is our primary use case?

I'm a software architect. The use case will depend my customers. They usually use it for data transfer from static files to a legacy system.

What needs improvement?

In the next release, I would like for there to be some authorization features and HTL security. 

We also need bigger software and better monitoring. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Apache Kafka for the last ten years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is good. We've never had any issues. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is very good. 

How are customer service and technical support?

I have never needed to contact technical support. My colleagues get support from here, in Morrocco. 

How was the initial setup?

The setup is not a big deal for us. We can handle it. After the system is set up, the person who administers it has to do so with Apache Kafka.

Depending on the setup, it will usually take two weeks.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a nine out of ten. Not a ten because of the monitoring and admin improvement I'd like for them to make.
