  • High-throughput

We do not need any large hardware in Kafka, because it is capable of handling high-velocity and high-volume data. Moreover, it can also support message throughput of thousands of messages per second.

  • Low Latency

Kafka can easily handle these messages with the very low latency of the range of milliseconds, demanded by most of the new use cases.

  • Fault-Tolerant

Kafka is resistant to node/machine failure within a cluster.

  • Durability

As Kafka supports messages replication, so,  messages are never lost. It is one of the reasons behind durability.

  • Scalability

Kafka can be scaled-out, without incurring any downtime on the fly by adding additional nodes.

Hope this helps
