Apache Kafka is recognized as the world’s leading real-time, fault tolerant, highly scalable stream platform. It is adopted very widely across thousands of companies worldwide from web giants like LinkedIn, Netflix, Uber to large enterprises like Apple , Cisco, Goldman Sachs and more.
In this talk, we will look at what Confluent has done along with the help from the community to enable running Kafka as a fully managed service. The engineers at Confluent spent multiple years running Kafka as a service and learnt very valuable lessons in that process. They understood how things are very different when you run in a controlled environment inside a single company vs running Kafka for thousands of companies. This talk will go over those valuable lessons and what we have built in Kafka as a result which is available to all Kafka users as part of Confluent Cloud.
We will cover three key aspects
We will also touch a bit on code quality and compile time bug identification approaches we employ to ensure we build a highly reliable system that is essential to run Kafka as a service with top notch SLAs.
