If you’ve worked with Kafka–which is a supported technology included in Cloudflow by Lightbend–then you may have discovered that it’s best suited to run on bare metal on dedicated machines, and in statically defined clusters.
But for many of us, this isn’t convenient for utilizing the full scope of our resources, like mixed-use containers with orchestration technologies like DC/OS and/or Kubernetes, and on-premise, hybrid and cloud infrastructures.
So what can you do about it? Maybe it's time to put Kafka in jail.
In this webinar by Sean Glover (@seg1o), Senior Engineer for Cloudflow, we will review leading Kafka implementations on DC/OS and Kubernetes to see how they reliably run Kafka in container orchestrated clusters and reduce the overhead for a number of common operational tasks with standard cluster resource manager features. You will learn specifically about concerns like:
If you're using Kafka to support your streaming data applications, then check out how to leverage this technology along with others like Akka, Spark, Flink, and more. They are all included in Cloudflow, so you can get all the support you need from a single vendor. Schedule a demo of Cloudflow with us here:
