Why Learn Apache Kafka

Apache Kafka is an open-source messaging infrastructure designed by LinkedIn and used by several major SaaS (Software as a Service) applications that we use on a daily basis. Kafka was designed to work with large scale data movements and offer seamless performance and reliability. Today when most IT professionals are dealing with a data deluge in the form of hundreds of billions of message, Kafka is the big data solution that you need!

Apache Kafka training will take you through the architectural design of Kafka that enables it to process large strings of data in real-time. Kafka stores, processes, and publishes streams of data records seamlessly as they occur and in a durable manner. The speed and performance of Kafka can be attributed to the fact that it runs as a cluster on multiple servers, enabling it to span across several data centers.

IT professionals can use Kafka certification to dive into the intrinsic architecture of Apache Kafka. Moreover, it helps to understand Kafka API streams, learn how it is developed on Java, and eventually develop cutting-edge big data solutions using Kafka.
