In this regard, is Kafka a database?
Let’s explore a contentious question: is Kafka a database ? In some ways, yes: it writes everything to disk, and it replicates data across several machines to ensure durability. In other ways, no: it has no data model, no indexes, no way of querying data except by subscribing to the messages in a topic.
Furthermore, is Kafka a NoSQL database? Apache Kafka is an real-time messaging service. It stores streams of data safely in distributed and fault-tolerant. I don’t understant that why we need NoSQL databases like as MongoDB to store same data in Apache Kafka .
Considering this, what is Apache Kafka used for?
Kafka is a distributed streaming platform that is used publish and subscribe to streams of records. Kafka is used for fault tolerant storage. Kafka replicates topic log partitions to multiple servers. Kafka is designed to allow your apps to process records as they occur.
