I wanna use Kafka as a data warehouse of events, and I am concerned of scalability because of partition per node: what happens when we can’t scale up the machine, how do we get around this?

I might be confused and not have understood how Kafka works... or maybe is just to process the events and not to store them and query them as a database... any thoughts?
