Kafka versus RabbitMQ, A comparative study of two industry reference publish/subscribe implementations

  • Dobbelaere P.
  • Sheykh Esmaili K.

Apache Kafka and RabbitMQ are two popular publish/subscribe implementations that can be used when a multitude of data streams need to be connected between a set of producers and a set of con- sumers. They have some functional and non-functional features in common, which encourages software architects to compare them head to head. They also have unique features not found in the alternative architecture, which means that a choice will always be driven by considerations of the application(s) that use these compo- nents. This paper explores these features and provides details. We will also present some use cases, and indicate how specifc use cases align with either of the two studied systems. Finally, we guide the reader in making his own choice based on a determination table.

A Cloud Native Approach to 5G Network Slicing

5G networks will have to support a set of very diverse and often extreme requirements. Network slicing offers an effective way to unlock the full potential of 5G networks and meet those requirements on a shared network infrastructure. This paper presents a cloud native approach to network slicing. The cloud ...

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
