KAFKA - Kafka


Duration: 3 days
Kafka provides high throughput and scalable messaging systems. Developed on LinkedIn, it can be used effectively in place of traditional messaging system like JMS, Apache MQ etc. Because Kafka can be integrated into systems like Spark, Storm, Hadoop etc, it is a highly recommended messaging system for solving big data problems involved in messaging system. Features of Kafka Cluster like scalability, Fault tolerance, High throughput, Durability etc. makes it a leader in today's market in messaging systems. Due to extensive use of Kafka in market today, there is a steep increase in job opportunities. Kafka training courses cover integration of Kafka with other Big Data systems as well as how to set up real-time data pipelines for streaming applications.
