Confluent Kafka 2.3.0-4.0.0e

DC/OS Confluent Kafka is an automated service that makes it easy to deploy and manage Confluent Kafka on Mesosphere DC/OS, eliminating nearly all of the complexity traditionally associated with managing a Kafka cluster. Confluent 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 Confluent Kafka gives you direct access to the Confluent Kafka API so that existing producers and consumers can interoperate. You can configure and install DC/OS Confluent Kafka in moments. Multiple Confluent Kafka clusters can be installed on DC/OS and managed independently, so you can offer Confluent Kafka as a managed service to your organization.


DC/OS Confluent Kafka offers the following benefits of a semi-managed service:

  • Easy installation
  • Multiple Confluent Kafka clusters
  • Elastic scaling of brokers
  • Replication and graceful shutdown for high availability
  • Confluent Kafka cluster and broker monitoring


DC/OS Confluent 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
