Why use Kafka?

Apache Kafka is being readily adopted for large scale real-time event processing, log aggregation, and monitoring due to it’s speed and scalability. It surpasses many other messaging systems due to the following benefits:

  • Scalability:

    System can scale quickly and effortlessly without incurring downtime.

  • Resilient and fault tolerant:

    The system is resilient to node failures with the support of automatic recovery.

  • High throughput:

    Handles large streams of data consistently without wavering in performance.

  • Low latency processing:

    Consistent performance and easier support for multiple data sources and distributed data consumption.

  • Parallelism and decoupling:

    Architecture is flexible and adaptable to change due to it’s high level of parallelism and decoupling.

  • Angie's List Case Study

    The Engineering team at Angie’s List knew that they needed to transition their site to a more modern, flexible and performance-based framework like Scala. Their rapid growth was not compatible with the current .Net legacy stack and they were finding the infrastructure to be inflexible, slow, and lacking the usability they required to move forward. When they needed specific expertise from highly experienced Scala developers for the transition, the team turned to 47 Degrees.
