More on Kafka

Launch on more than a Single VM using Kafka Cluster

Looking for Kafka with multiple brokers? Try Bitnami’s Kafka Cluster solution, which uses the native cloud provider APIs to create a unified, high-throughput, low-latency platform for handling real-time data feeds.

On Microsoft Azure, you can launch this configuration into your account using the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.

On Google Cloud Platform, you can launch this configuration into your account using the Google Cloud Launcher.

Why use the Bitnami Kafka Stack?

Bitnami makes it easy to run Kafka in the cloud, locally or virtually. The Bitnami Kafka Stack is:

  • Up-to-date

    We track every release of Kafka and update our stack shortly after it's released.

  • Secure

    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.

  • Consistent

    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.
