In this lecture, we will review aspects of Apache Kafka which makes it a serious candidate for
utilization as a Publisher / Subscriber messaging system - in particular for our microservice
architecture software platform. We will discuss the built-in support for load-balancing, as well as scaling and fault-tolerance.
