Is the DFI a message broker, like Kafka?

Authors list

There are many similarities between DFI and Kafka. For instance, Kafka does not replace the downstream pipeline, specifically it does not replace the need to have a database. The same is true for the DFI. However there are also key differences:

  • While Kafka does store data, it is not designed natively to support spatiotemporal queries. The DFI supports spatiotemporal queries effectively.

  • Kafka is not designed as a data store for massive volumes, whereas the DFI can handle massive volumes of data.

  • DFI isn’t designed to support messages. It can not guarantee the delivery of a message across a distributed architecture, as it is not aimed to solve this problem.
