Real-time stream processing

Apache Kafka

Stream and event processing for rapid data insights


Why choose Apache Kafka?

Apache Kafka offers real-time stream and event processing for any application. When deployed as a microservice integration, Kafka scales quickly and provides true record-at-a-time processing capabilities in near real time. Common use cases include banking, financial services, internet of things, online publishing, advertising delivery, business intelligence and analytics.

Benefits of Apache Kafka include:


The Kafka message broker streams data from virtually any source before redistributing it to your other applications. With massive scaling potential, Kafka can process streams with millisecond latency, processing enormous amounts of data every hour.

Real-time processing

Millisecond latency allows for near real-time processing – certainly fast enough for client-facing applications that must be blistering fast. With improved access to data, automations complete quicker, increasing efficiency and the overall user experience.

Integration capabilities

Apache Kafka is a lightweight Java library, ideal for integration into custom microservices that require a high degree of flexibility. These applications can be operated from almost any environment, standalone, containerised or via a resource manager.
