What is Apache Kafka?

Change the way you think about data.

You’ve probably heard of Apache Kafka. You know, that Big Data, publish/subscribe message broker, time ordered log thingamajig that integrates all your application data, and provides real-time materialized views while being crazy scalable?

Yeah, that one. In this article at the IBM developerWorks Blog, I talk about Apache Kafka. I’ll assume you’re the  perfect candidate for applying Kafka, and talk about your architecture today. Then I’ll describe where you want to be, what is blocking the path to your getting there, and finally, how Kafka can help.

Check it out if you get a chance. Kafka is really cool.
