DataSift moves from Redis PubSub to Kafka and 0mq :
Kafka is still a young project, but it’s maturing fast, and we’re confident enough to use it in production (as a matter of fact, we’ve been using it for months now) in front of our HBase cluster and to collect monitoring events sent from all our internal services. We chose Kafka especially for its persistent storage (which is essentially a partitioned binary log), but we plan to do some analytics via its support for Hadoop soon. And its distributed nature (coordination beetween consumers and brokers is done via Zookeeper) makes it very appealing too.
