We've had good luck using both streaming HTTP interfaces and long poll interfaces to get high throughput for other web services we've built.  Would this use case be appropriate in the context of the Marconi roadmap?


Kafka would be a good store to back Marconi with. We've had some
feedback from the community w.r.t Kafka and there seems to be lot of
interest on it. The team is not currently targeting it but we could
probably do something after the J release.

That said, Marconi's plugin architecture allows people to create
third-party drivers and obviously use them. It'd be really nice to see
some work going on that area as an external driver.
