A Technical Review of Kafka and DistributedLog

Sep 19, 2016 • Sijie Guo [@sijieg]

We open sourced DistributedLog 1 in May 2016. It generated a lot of interest in the community. One frequent question we are asked is how does DistributedLog compare to Apache Kafka 2. Technically DistributedLog is not a full fledged partitioned pub/sub system like Apache Kafka. DistributedLog is a replicated log stream store, using Apache BookKeeper 3 as its log segment store. It focuses on offering durability, replication and strong consistency as essentials for building reliable real-time systems. One can use DistributedLog to build and experiment with different messaging models (such as Queue, Pub/Sub).
