   Kafka does it better. By having a notion of parallelism&mdash;the partition&mdash;within
the topics, Kafka is able to provide both ordering guarantees and load balancing over a pool
of consumer processes. This is achieved by assigning the partitions in the topic to the consumers
in the consumer group so that each partition is consumed by exactly one consumer in the group.
By doing this we ensure that the consumer is the only reader of that partition and consumes
the data in order. Since there are many partitions this still balances the load over many
consumer instances. Note however that there cannot be more consumer instances in a consumer
group than partitions.

   <p>
   Any message queue that allows publishing messages decoupled from consuming them is effectively
acting as a storage system for the in-flight messages. What is different about Kafka is that
it is a very good storage system.

   <p>
   As a result of taking storage seriously and allowing the clients to control their read
position, you can think of Kafka as a kind of special purpose distributed filesystem dedicated
to high-performance, low-latency commit log storage, replication, and propagation.

   It isn't enough to just read, write, and store streams of data, the purpose is to enable
real-time processing of streams.
