Nationwide Building Society, a financial institution in the United Kingdom with 137 years of history and over 18,000 employees, relies on Apache Kafka for their event streaming needs.

Coming up with an honest test built on open source tools in an easily documented, replicable environment for a distributed system like Apache Kafka is not simple.
