Kafka operator

Banzai Cloud's Kafka operator installs and manages the entire Kafka lifecycle automatically, based on the instructions you give in a simple Kubernetes custom resource.

Autoscaling: automates load balancing and the creation and removal of brokers on demand. Downscaling is handled without any disruption to the clients. Cruise Control based rules are applied for self-healing.

Prometheus is configured to collect all metrics that lets you observe the status and performance of your application. Grafana dashboards aid troubleshooting, alert manager is preconfigured with meaningful defaults. Rule-based action plugins leverage Prometheus metrics.

Advanced security settings provide effortless channel encryption and access management.
