Kafka is used for building real-time data pipelines and streaming apps. It is horizontally scalable, fault-tolerant, wicked fast, and runs in production in thousands of companies. In the Internet-of-Things (IoT) domain Kafka is often used to stream the data of your IoT devices into other systems for further processing, analyses and storage.
Kafka works using a cluster of Kafka nodes which store the streams of records in categories called topics. Streams of records can be read by multiple consumers from multiple consumer groups. This Kafka connector includes microflow actions and a config portal for all basic operations for ingesting and sending data from and to Kafka.

5/5starsI wonder why it is in IoT category. Should it fit BigData better?
