What is Kafka?
Apache Kafka is an open-source, distributed event streaming platform used to process, store, and analyze real-time data feeds. It is designed to handle high volume, high throughput, and low latency data streams, and can be used to build real-time data pipelines and streaming applications. Kafka is written in Scala and Java and is often used in conjunction with Apache Storm, Apache Hadoop, and Apache Spark.
