Subject Distributed Log as Kafka's backend
Date Mon, 01 Aug 2016 16:01:15 GMT
Sijie,

Thank you so much for your quick reply. We are using Kafka now and we are
interested in the features in DL like durability and handling slow machines.

If it is okay to the community, we'd like to give a try and evaluate the
solution. Is there any process that I should follow?
