Welcome to the documentation for the DC/OS Apache Kafka. For more information about new and changed features, see the release notes.
DC/OS Apache Kafka is an automated service that makes it easy to deploy and manage Apache Kafka on Mesosphere DC/OS, eliminating nearly all of the complexity traditionally associated with managing a Kafka cluster. Apache Kafka is a distributed high-throughput publish-subscribe messaging system with strong ordering guarantees. Kafka clusters are highly available, fault tolerant, and very durable.
DC/OS Kafka gives you direct access to the Kafka API so that existing producers and consumers can interoperate. You can configure and install DC/OS Kafka in moments. Multiple Kafka clusters can be installed on DC/OS and managed independently, so you can offer Kafka as a managed service to your organization.
DC/OS Kafka offers the following benefits of a semi-managed service:
Multiple Kafka clusters
Elastic scaling of brokers
Replication for high availability
Kafka cluster and broker monitoring
DC/OS Kafka provides the following features:
Single-command installation for rapid provisioning
Multiple clusters for multiple tenancy with DC/OS
High availability runtime configuration and software updates
Storage volumes for enhanced data durability, known as Mesos Dynamic Reservations and Persistent Volumes
Integration with syslog-compatible logging services for diagnostics and troubleshooting
Integration with statsd-compatible metrics services for capacity and performance monitoring
