Apache Kafka Valuable Features

Kafka has a good storage layer on its side. I can store this data if it's streaming, and, if we do encounter any error, for example, on the network or server, we can later use the data to do some analytics on it using the Kafka server. Kafka provides us with a way to store the data used for analytics. That's the big selling point. There's very good log management. Kafka provides many APIs that can be flexible and can be placed or expanded using the development life cycle. For example, using Java, I can customize the API according to our customers' demands. I can expand the functionality according to our customer demands as well. It's also possible to create some models. It allows for more flexibility than much of the competition. View full review »

The most valuable feature is that it can handle high volume. Apache Kafa is open-source and some of our clients are interested in becoming more involved in that. View full review »

When we're working with big data, we need a throughput computing panel, which is something that Kafka provides, and something we find extremely valuable. It helps us support computing and ensures there's no loss of data. It can even do replication with some data. The delivery of data is it's most valuable aspect. It's an easy to use product overall. The solution is quite mature. It's an open-source product, which means it doesn't cost us anything to use it. View full review »
