Kafka Manager vs Redis: What are the differences?
What is Kafka Manager? A tool for managing Apache Kafka, developed by Yahoo. This interface makes it easier to identify topics which are unevenly distributed across the cluster or have partition leaders unevenly distributed across the cluster. It supports management of multiple clusters, preferred replica election, replica re-assignment, and topic creation. It is also great for getting a quick bird’s eye view of the cluster.
What is Redis? An in-memory database that persists on disk. Redis is an open source, BSD licensed, advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets and sorted sets.
Kafka Manager belongs to "Message Queue" category of the tech stack, while Redis can be primarily classified under "In-Memory Databases".
Kafka Manager and Redis are both open source tools. It seems that Redis with 37.1K GitHub stars and 14.3K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Kafka Manager with 7.45K GitHub stars and 1.82K GitHub forks.
Airbnb, Uber Technologies, and Instagram are some of the popular companies that use Redis, whereas Kafka Manager is used by Yahoo!, IgnitionOne, and Ocado Technology. Redis has a broader approval, being mentioned in 3239 company stacks & 1735 developers stacks; compared to Kafka Manager, which is listed in 8 company stacks and 4 developer stacks.
