In an enterprise level, it’s obvious for applications to be based on messaging for communication. This is done using a middleware between these applications as a Message Bus that enables them to work together.
One of the most used Messaging solutions is Apache Kafka: Kafka is an open-source stream-processing software platform developed by LinkedIn and donated to the Apache Software Foundation, written in Scala and Java. The project aims to provide a unified, high-throughput, low-latency platform for handling real-time data feeds. It is horizontally scalable, fault-tolerant, wicked fast, and runs in production in thousands of companies. Kafka Clusters can be deployed in bare metal or in the Cloud.
Microsoft provides a great Azure Service for Kafka customers: Azure Event Hubs 🤩
