      Description

      Apache Kafka is rapidly finding its place in data heavy organizations as a fault-tolerant message bus. One of the goals of Kafka is data integration, which makes it important to support many users in one Kafka system. With increasing adoption and user community, support for multi-tenancy is becoming a popular demand. There have been a few discussions on Apache Kafka’s mailing lists regarding the same, indicating importance of the feature. Namespaces will allow/ enable many functionalities that require logical grouping of topics. If you think topic as a SQL table, then namespace is a SQL database that lets you group tables together.

      KIP-37 covers the details.
