Kafka - Followers


Each partition has one server which acts as the leader and zero or more servers which act as followers.

The followers replicate the leader while the leader handles all read and write requests for the partition.

If the leader fails, one of the followers will automatically become the new leader.

Each server acts as a leader for some of its partitions and a follower for others so load is well balanced within the cluster.
