From the Red Hat Summit 2017
Apache Kafka has recently become an interesting option for messaging. Kafka boasts some impressive features and performance numbers, so should you use it? In this session, we'll take a closer look at Kafka, the problems it was intended to solve and put it up against traditional brokers like Red Hat JBoss A-MQ / Apache ActiveMQ. We'll walk through the tradeoffs of each, and help you reason through the right messaging brokers for your use cases. Finally, we'll see how message brokers can be used in a complementary manner, bridging between the AMQP protocol provided by JBoss A-MQ and Apache Kafka.
