Kafka is a distributed streaming platform that aims to provide a unified, high-throughput, low-latency for handling real-time data feeds. Kafka offers reliable, millisecond responses to support both customer-facing applications and connecting downstream systems with real-time data. It is suitable for both offline and online message consumption where messages are persisted on the disk and replicated within the cluster for prevention of data loss.
