Apache Kafka is a distributed streaming platform with four
core APIs:

** The Producer API allows an application to publish a
stream records to one or more Kafka topics.

** The Consumer API allows an application to subscribe to
one or more topics and process the stream of records
produced to them.

** The Streams API allows an application to act as a stream
processor, consuming an input stream from one or more topics
and producing an output stream to one or more output topics,
effectively transforming the input streams to output

** The Connector API allows building and running reusable
producers or consumers that connect Kafka topics to existing
applications or data systems. For example, a connector to a
relational database might capture every change to a table.

With these APIs, Kafka can be used for two broad classes of

** Building real-time streaming data pipelines that reliably
get data between systems or applications.

** Building real-time streaming applications that transform
or react to the streams of data.

Apache Kafka is in use at large and small companies
worldwide, including Capital One, Goldman Sachs, ING,
LinkedIn, Netflix, Pinterest, Rabobank, Target, The New York
Times, Uber, Yelp, and Zalando, among others.
