How Much Can You Connect?

« Kafka Summit Americas 2021

How many connects can you run in a single cluster? Disney + Hotstar runs over 10 different connect clusters with over 2000+ connectors. In this talk, we share our experience of running Kafka connect at scale. We will walk through our decisions of using one cluster vs many and how the improvements in the connect ecosystem like incremental rebalancing have allowed us to scale to thousands of connects. We will also discuss challenges with scaling up & down connect workers while keeping the ecosystem stable & present a wishlist of the missing features in this distributed task framework.
