Apache Kafka on Kubernetes

Apache Kafka is an alternative enterprise messaging system that moves massive amounts of data—not just from point A to B, but from points A to Z.


Strimzi: Kubernetes Operator for Apache Kafka

Strimzi is a CNCF Sandbox project which provides the leading community Operators to deploy and manage the components to run an Apache Kafka cluster on Kubernetes in various deployment configurations. This includes the Kafka brokers, Apache ZooKeeper, MirrorMaker and Kafka Connect.

Having Kubernetes-native APIs makes it easy to manage Kafka topics and users, and there are multiple ways to enable secure access to Kafka from outside the Kubernetes cluster. Want to learn more? Visit the website for the latest details about the upstream project that powers AMQ streams.

Deploy Red Hat AMQ Streams and Fuse on OpenShift Container Platform 4

Red Hat AMQ is a message broker for building communications among Java applications. Message-based applications are a key core capability of modern software development, and AMQ provides a solid foundation for building them. The Streams module, which is based on the Apache Kafka and Strimzi projects, runs on Linux, macOS and Windows. The module also supports the publish/subscribe messaging method, better for containers. There are also Debezium Change Data Capture connectors that are used to capture row-level database changes and communicate these changes to your apps.
