Written by Elin Vinka

This free online event explores the differences between two popular message brokers from a use-case perspective.

CloudKarafka, expert hosts of Apache Kafka clusters, has years of experience with message streams - the platform that allows messages to be passed between processes and other systems. On a pretty regular basis, our users ask to explain the differences between the two most popular brokers, Apache Kafka and RabbitMQ. The Apache Kafka team thought it was a great time to hold an online event!

Why explore these two brokers?

Apache Kafka and RabbitMQ are the two most popular messaging platforms, so naturally, they get compared to each other. The assumption is that they are almost the same and solve the same issues, but that is not always the case. In fact, a use-case perspective would explain the differences between these two quite nicely, so that is the format for this online event!

Anyone that wants to learn more about message brokers, in general, should sign up for this free online event. Beginners and expert message queue developers alike will find new, interesting information to challenge what they know about Apache Kafka and RabbitMQ. We hope to see you online!
