Kafka appears to provide a pub-sub message broker style interaction model. It appears
to be highly scalable and available and redundant using zookeeper to ensure thread
safe operation for it's underlying multi server architecture.
Kafka connectors for publisher and subscriber could be created as a NetKernel module.
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.
