If you're interested in using this solution, be sure to do some POC before integrating it. Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of eight. Kafka is open-source software. In order for you to leverage it behind the scenes, you have to use ZooKeeper, which is essentially a type of server — you have to integrate with it. If you don't use MSK, then you'll have to do this manually, by yourself. MSK has already launched ZooKeeper and the cluster. This is included as an out-of-the-box feature, which is very convenient.
