A powerful, container-based event streaming engine for a variety of modern use cases

The power of Apache Kafka…

Apache Kafka is an open-source distributed event streaming platform used for building real-time data pipelines and streaming apps. It is a publish-subscribe messaging system that can handle trillions of events.

… meets the power of Kubernetes

When combined with the functionality of the ValueCloud Service Foundation, numerous additional advantages and benefits come up that a stand-alone Kafka doesn’t have.

A modern Kafka experience, running on Cluster API Kubernetes

ValueCloud UES leverages the Strimzi project, and seamlessly integrates it with the Kubernetes-native ValueCloud Service Foundation.

Apache Kafka

Apache Kafka is the gold standard for open source event streaming.

Kafka Connect

Kafka Connect is a tool for scalably and reliably streaming data.

Mirror Maker 2

MirrorMaker is a stand-alone tool for copying data between two Kafka clusters.

Kafka Bridge

Kafka Bridge provides a RESTful interface that allows HTTP-based clients.

Seven good reasons for running Apache Kafka on Kubernetes:

There are several advantages to running Apache Kafka on Kubernetes:

  1. Scalability: Kubernetes allows for easy scaling of Kafka clusters, making it simple to add or remove nodes as needed.

  2. High Availability: By running Kafka on Kubernetes, you can ensure that your data is highly available, even in the event of node failures.

  3. Automatic failover: Kubernetes can automatically detect and recover from node failures, minimizing downtime.

  4. Resource management: Kubernetes allows for fine-grained control over resources such as CPU and memory, ensuring that your Kafka cluster has the resources it needs to function efficiently.

  5. Portability: Kafka on Kubernetes can run on any cloud provider or on-premises, making it easy to deploy and manage your Kafka clusters.

  6. Better monitoring and logging: Kubernetes provides better monitoring and logging capabilities for Kafka, making it easier to troubleshoot and diagnose issues.

  7. Integration with other tools: a Kafka running on Kubernetes can easily integrate with other tools and services running on the same cluster.
