kafka 3.4.0


Apache Kafka 3.4.0 is a popular, open-source distributed streaming platform that is designed to handle large volumes of real-time data. It provides a highly scalable, fault-tolerant, and reliable way to store, process, and analyze data streams in real-time. With Kafka, you can build real-time data pipelines, stream data from various sources, and process it as it arrives. Kafka is widely used in industries such as finance, healthcare, and e-commerce, where real-time data analysis is critical to make informed decisions. In this article, we'll explore some of the key features of Kafka, use cases, how to use it, and technical details of the platform.

  • High-throughput, low-latency data processing: Kafka can handle millions of events per second with sub-millisecond latency.
  • Scalability: Kafka is designed to scale horizontally across multiple servers and can be deployed in a cluster of brokers to handle large volumes of data.
  • Fault-tolerant: Kafka provides fault-tolerance by replicating data across multiple brokers and supporting automatic leader election and failover.
  • Real-time data streaming: Kafka supports real-time data streaming by allowing producers to push data in real-time and consumers to receive data as it arrives.
  • Easy integration: Kafka can be easily integrated with other tools and platforms such as Apache Spark, Apache Flink, and Apache Storm.

  • Messaging: Kafka is often used as a messaging system to handle high-volume, real-time data streams between different applications and services.
  • Log aggregation: Kafka can be used to collect and centralize log data from different sources, enabling real-time analysis and monitoring.

  1. Install and configure Kafka.
  2. Create a Kafka cluster by setting up multiple Kafka brokers.
  3. Create Kafka topics to organize and partition data.
  4. Write producers to send data to Kafka topics.
  5. Write consumers to read data from Kafka topics.
  6. Optionally, integrate Kafka with other tools and platforms for data processing and analysis.

  • Written in: Scala and Java
  • Protocol: Apache Kafka Protocol (custom binary TCP protocol)
  • API: Producer API, Consumer API, Streams API, Connect API
  • Architecture: Distributed, scalable, fault-tolerant, and pub/sub messaging system.
  • Storage: Data is stored in topic partitions on disk.
  • Replication: Data is replicated across multiple brokers for fault-tolerance and scalability.
  • Security: Supports SSL/TLS encryption, authentication, and authorization.
  • Deployment: Can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud.
