About Apache Kafka

Apache Kafka is a distributed messaging platform created to manage real-time data ingestion and processing of streaming data. Kafka builds real-time streaming data pipelines and real-time streaming applications. Kafka servers or brokers consume and process high volumes of streaming records from millions of events per day combining queuing and publish-subscribe messaging models for distributed data processing. This allows data processing to be carried out across multiple consumer instances and enables every subscriber to receive every message. More on Apache Kafka
