Run Confluent Platform on Kubernetes
Using Best Practices


There is a growing need for automation that enables organizations to scale efficiently and effectively. Using Kubernetes for all services deployed in production not only increases manageability by automating their operations but also improves availability, as well as provides more flexibility around resource management.

In this white paper, Principal Data Architect, Gwen Shapira will:

  • Describe Kubernetes terms, concepts and considerations
  • Explain helm charts, storage, traffic, log aggregation, metrics and more
  • Share best practices to help software developers and production operations teams with their deployment of Confluent Platform—a more complete distribution of Apache Kafka—on Kubernetes
