We are using Kafka as an ingress and egress queue for data being saved into a big data system. Kafka is also being used as a queue for frontend applications to use in order to retrieve data and analytics from MapR and HortonWorks.
  • Fast queuing
  • Easy to set up and configure
  • Easy to add and remove queues
  • User interface for configuration could be a little better
  • Could be a little more defined when configuring files
  • Logging is a little hard to follow
If you need a queue for ingest or user interfaces Kafka is a great tool. Easy on the admins as well as the developers.

User Review: "Apache Kafka, the F1 of messaging"

Apache Kafka is becoming the new standard for messaging at our organization. Originally we limited the use to big data environments and projects but as the technology is becoming more mature we think it will eventually replace classical messaging software.
  • High volume/performance throughput environments
  • Low latency projects
  • Multiple consumers for the same data, reprocessing, long-lasting information
  • Still a bit inmature, some clients have required recoding in the last few versions
  • New feaures coming very fast, several upgrades a year may be required
  • Not many commercial companies provide support
Apache Kafka is extremely well suited in near real-time scenarios, high volume or multi-location projects. It can solve escalation problems for a fraction of the cost other solutions do and it has the flexibility of open source scenarios.
