Apache Kafka + Apache Zookeeper: A Truly Distributed & Scalable System

  • submit to reddit

Apache Kafka - distributed publish-subscribe messaging system - Morten Kjetland from Booster conference on Vimeo.

Apache Kafka is a distributed publish-subscribe messaging system developed by Linkedin.

It has been created with performance, availability and scalability in mind and is used as the messaging backbone at linkedin.

In this lightningtalk I will talk about how Kafka is different from other publish-subscribe messaging systems, how it achieves such good performance and how it uses Apache Zookeeper to be a truly distributed- and scalable system.

Recorded 13 March 2013 at the Booster conference in Bergen, Norway.
