Apache Kafka is a distributed streaming platform. It provides a unified, high-throughput, low-latency platform for handling real-time data feeds. Kafka can be used as a Messaging system like ActiveMQ or RabbitMQ. It supports fault tolerance using a replica set within the cluster. Kafka can be used for storing the data and stream processing to read the data in nearly real-time. The producers produce the message to topics. The consumer consumes the data from topics.
