In the last few years, Apache Kafka® has been used extensively in enterprises for real-time data collecting, delivering, and processing. In this talk, we’ll dive into some of the key internals that help make Kafka popular including:

  • Companies like LinkedIn sending greater than one trillion messages per day to Kafka. Learn about the underlying design in Kafka that leads to such high throughput.
  • Many companies (e.g., financial institutions) are now storing mission critical data in Kafka. Learn how Kafka supports high availability and durability through its built-in replication mechanism.
