Kafka: LinkedIn's Distributed Publish/Subscribe Messaging System

Another open source project from LinkedIn:

Kafka is a distributed publish-subscribe messaging system. It is designed to support the following:

  • Persistent messaging with O(1) disk structures that provide constant time performance even with many TB of stored messages.
  • High-throughput: even with very modest hardware Kafka can support hundreds of thousands of messages per second.
  • Explicit support for partitioning messages over Kafka servers and distributing consumption over a cluster of consumer machines while maintaining per-partition ordering semantics.
  • Support for parallel data load into Hadoop.

LinkedIn has open sourced a couple of exciting projects, but they haven’t been able to get enough attention and grow so far a community around these.
