Pub/Sub messaging communication is a form of asynchronous service communication commonly used in micro-services or serverless systems. The system consists of brokes for receiving and delivering messages, the data sender is called Producers and the data receiver is called Consumers, the sending and receiving data is usually arranged by topics. Producer and Consumer donโ€™t communicate directly but via Brokers. That system allows decoupling the micro-services, increase the independent and the ability of expanding the services and application in the micro-service system.

Kafka is considered a popular open-source for that above purpose and many more features like Event Streaming. However, enterprises themselves build infrastructure, install, operate and manage, troubleshoot and add essential features and features for production (HA, Auto-scaling, Auto-balancing, Backup). & Recovery etc…) Kafka alone cannot satisfy.

There are already a number of commercial products that implement Pub/Sub Messaging and most of them are international products. The disadvantage is that it is expensive, the features and performance are not optimized for the domestic market like.Some of them requires customer to provide the infrastructure. The most well-known international product – Confluent, provides a lot of features, but it is quite expensive. Moreover, it lacks a micro-service eco-system to help in fully connecting, managing and optimizing the producer and consumer in the communication channel.
