Subject Re: Which streaming platform is best? Kafka or Spark Streaming?
Date Fri, 10 Mar 2017 12:17:19 GMT
Kafka and Spark Streaming don't do the same thing. Kafka stores and
transports data, Spark Streaming runs computations on a stream of data.
Neither is itself a streaming platform in its entirety.

It's kind of like asking whether you should build a website using just
MySQL, or nginx.
