Yes, we opensourced yet another Apache Kafka operator for Kubernetes. This might seem bizarre, considering the alternatives that are already available (they exist but there are not too many), so you may be wondering, ‘Why?’ Well, keep reading and we’ll tell you: from design gaps and features we believe are necessary to operate Kafka on K8s, through my personal fix for Envoy, to some of our specific usage scenarios.

There has been a lot of talk about multi- and hybrid-cloud deployments over the past years. Some cloud vendors see these trends as a threat, others look at them as an opportunity. We think that beneath the buzzwords lie some very important use-cases driven by the needs of enterprises and SaaS providers. However, delivering and operating multi- and hybrid-clouds had been too complex for most organizations so far. The use-cases that we’ve seen at customers broadly relate to three main areas: flexibility, cost optimization, and compliance.

If you’re a frequent reader of this blog, you may have already seen a “short” description of what our platform does. It usually goes something like this: Banzai Cloud Pipeline is a solution-oriented application platform which allows enterprises to develop, deploy and securely scale container-based applications in multi- and hybrid-cloud environments. We frequently elaborate on this by providing a list of key features: Banzai Cloud Pipeline leverages best-of-breed cloud components, such as Kubernetes and adds a unified system architecture that enables a highly productive, yet flexible environment for developers and operations teams alike.
