Disaster Recovery Options Running Apache Kafka in Kubernetes

Active-Active, Active-Passive, and stretch clusters are hallmark patterns that have been the gold standard in Apache Kafka® disaster recovery architectures for years. Moving to Kubernetes requires unpacking these patterns and choosing a configuration that allows you to meet the same RTO and RPO requirements.

In this talk, we will cover how Active-Active/Active-Passive modes for disaster recovery have worked in the past and how the architecture evolves with deploying Apache Kafka on Kubernetes. We'll also look at how stretch clusters sitting on this architecture give a disaster recovery solution that's built-in!

Armed with this information, you will be able to architect your new Apache Kafka Kubernetes deployment (or retool your existing one) to achieve the resilience you require.
