Apache Kafka is publish-subscribe messaging rethought as a distributed commit log.
Why use the Bitnami Kafka Stack?
Bitnami makes it easy to run Kafka in the cloud, locally or virtually. The Bitnami Kafka Stack is:
We track every release of Kafka and update our stack shortly after it's released.
If serious security issues are discovered, we provide new versions of Kafka as soon as possible, often within hours of the availability of a fix.
With Bitnami, you get the same software stack and configuration regardless of where you are deploying Kafka or other Bitnami Applications. This makes it easy to migrate between different platforms.
With the Bitnami Kafka Stack compiling, configuring and all of its dependencies are taken care of, so it works out-of-the-box.
Nobody has written a review of Bitnami Kafka yet, why not be the first?
