Enterprises are putting immense emphasis on business intelligence, analytics, IoT, web tracking, log aggregation and monitoring. This results in a flood of data and introduces the necessity for large scale data processing from multiple sources. Apache Kafka, often referred to as Kafka, is the industry-leading, highly scalable, fault tolerant, distributed streaming platform built to handle trillions of events per day. It provides real-time analysis of large amounts of data with scalability and reliability. Kafka is used in production by more than a third of the Fortune 500.
Performance is where Kafka shines ahead of other streaming platforms. However, like all software applications, it is limited by the underlying infrastructure and storage. This is where the bare-metal hyperconverged infrastructure based on Diamanti Enterprise Kubernetes Platform helps unveil the full potential of Kafka.
