Overall Satisfaction with Apache Kafka

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
  • Kafka is free
  • Speeds up ingest
  • Faster for UI to get data
If you need a queue for ingest or user interfaces Kafka is a great tool. Easy on the admins as well as the developers.
