At my current work place, recently Kafka has become the "de-coupling engine" helping transitioning from the previous monolithic back-end implementation to a more decoupled micro-services architectural approach.

Wondering if any correlation could be made between NetKernel and Kafka. Could these two technologies complement each other? Are they exclusive, is it one or the other?

Please note that myself I barely scratched the surface of the Kafka world.

Thanks, mircea
