Apache Kafka is known for many things, one being the ability to process over 1 million messages per second. The ease of decoupling components makes it appealing to developers as well.

In this hands-on lab, you will build a custom Kafka cluster and create a topic. A topic consists of many partitions of messages and is the fundamental unit used in Kafka.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
