Event Store vs Kafka: What are the differences?

Event Store: The open-source, functional database with Complex Event Processing *. It stores your data as a series of immutable events over time, making it easy to build event-sourced applications. It can run as a cluster of nodes containing the same data, which remains available for writes provided at least half the nodes are alive and connected; *Kafka:** Distributed, fault tolerant, high throughput pub-sub messaging system. Kafka is a distributed, partitioned, replicated commit log service. It provides the functionality of a messaging system, but with a unique design.

Event Store can be classified as a tool in the "Databases" category, while Kafka is grouped under "Message Queue".

Kafka is an open source tool with 12.7K GitHub stars and 6.81K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Kafka's open source repository on GitHub.

      Front-end messages are logged to Kafka by our API and application servers. We have batch processing (on the middle-left) and real-time processing (on the middle-right) pipelines to process the experiment data. For batch processing, after daily raw log get to s3, we start our nightly experiment workflow to figure out experiment users groups and experiment metrics. We use our in-house workflow management system Pinball to manage the dependencies of all these MapReduce jobs.
