LinkedIn has just announced the release of Camus

Kafka is a high-throughput, persistent, distributed messaging system that was originally developed at LinkedIn. It forms the backbone of Wikimedia’s new data analytics pipeline.

Kafka is both performant and durable. To make it easier to achieve high throughput on a single node it also does away with lots of stuff message brokers ordinarily provide (making it a simpler distributed messaging system).

LinkedIn has just announced the release of Camus: their Kafka to HDFS pipeline.
