Be infrastructure-enabled, not infrastructure-restricted

Event streaming enables you to innovate and win – by being both real-time and highly scalable

Kafka

Why use Kafka?

Apache Kafka is an open-source distributed event streaming platform used by thousands of companies for high-performance data pipelines, streaming analytics, data integration, and mission-critical applications. It combines three key capabilities for event streaming end-to-end: to write and read streams of events, to store streams of events durably and reliably for long, and to process streams of events as they occur or retrospectively. All these functionalities are provided in a distributed, highly scalable, elastic, fault-tolerant, and secure manner. Deploy it on your bare-metal hardware, virtual machines, and containers, or on-premises as well as in the cloud – no wonder over 80% of all Fortune 100 companies trust, and use Kafka.
