Working project review of Kafka and Zookeeper on Windows

  • March 28, 2022
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
1) Kafka libraries are not only designed for linux based systems but also for windows based systems.
2) No need of having multiple systems to act as kafka nodes, which is little difficult when you are operating in your personal windows environment. Rather you can multiple instances defined using segregation of port functionality and keeping the hostname same.
3) Start, Stop, Status scripts in form of .bat files for execution in windows environment.
4) Doesn't need heavy RAM utilization.
What do you dislike?
1) Dependency on Zookeeper nodes.
2) Usage of multiple terminals may some times lead to confusion.
3) Need to open multiple windows for running multiple instances, as there is no common script that can start all the servers at once.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
1) In today's world, all the servers are using Linux OS or are deployed on cloud. But, to start with basics, Getting handson on Windows environment is recommended.
2) Kafka and Zookeeper are used for message streaming applications as they provide a platform for streaming data in near real time.
3) Concept of partitioning and replication is a very good use case for distributed system's application.
4) No dependency on single node for any particular set of data, which makes system fault tolerant.
5) Uses multiple nodes, hence supporting the concept of high availability (HA).
Recommendations to others considering the product:
1) Would recommend people who are naive to Kafka to start with Kafka and Zookeeper on Windows platform. This will help them troubleshoot most of the issues that they might face in future when they transition to Linux basedd Kafka deployment.

  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Its easy to get started and deploy it on azure.
What do you dislike?
Azure managed disks used here needs to be configured properly if one needs kafka cluster to scale well.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
All distributed message broker use cases ae taken care by kafka when it comes to microservices deployed in azure. Integrating the microservices application to kafka is easy.
