Kafka Broker

The Kafka broker in the United Manufacturing Hub is RedPanda, a Kafka-compatible event streaming platform. It’s used to store and process messages, in order to stream real-time data between the microservices.

How it works

RedPanda is a distributed system that is made up of a cluster of brokers, designed for maximum performance and reliability. It does not depend on external systems like ZooKeeper, as it’s shipped as a single binary.
