ZooKeeper is a software built by Apache which is used to maintain configuration and naming data along with providing robust and flexible synchronization in the distributed systems. It acts as a centralized service and helps to keep track of the Kafka cluster nodes status, Kafka topics, and partitions. It allows multiple users to perform read and write actions simultaneously and acts as a shared configuration service in the system.

Due to the availability of a large amount of data on a daily basis, many organizations are hiring Kafka professionals including:

  • Capgemini
  • Harman
  • Dev Solutions
  • Cambridge Technology
  • Info Edge
  • Future Focus Infotech
