Check out Backyards in action on your own clusters! Register for an evaluation version and run a simple install command! Want to know more? Get in touch with us, or delve into the details of the latest release. Or just take a look at some of the Istio features that Backyards automates and simplifies for you, and which we’ve already blogged about. Since releasing our open-source Istio operator, we’ve been doing our best to add support for the latest Istio versions as rapidly as possible.

If you’re reading this post, you’re likely already familiar with our container management platform, Pipeline, and our CNCF certified Kubernetes distribution, PKE: you probably already know how we make it possible to spin up clusters across five cloud providers and on-premise, in multi-cloud but also hybrid-cloud environments. But whether these are single or multi-cluster topologies, resilience is key. We at Banzai Cloud believe this is the case not just for infrastructural components but for entire managed application environments, like Apache Kafka.

At Banzai Cloud we work on a multi- and hybrid-cloud container management platform, Pipeline. As a result, we’ve opensourced quite a few Kubernetes operators. While writing some of the more complex operators, such as those for Istio, Vault or Kafka, we were faced with lots of unnecessary Kubernetes object updates. These updates are a byproduct of the fact that operators are typically used to manage a large number of resources. In each iteration, resource objects are first populated with their desired values, then sent to the Kubernetes API Server to ensure their desired state.

But, just to recap, let’s define it as a highly configurable, dedicated and low‑latency infrastructure layer designed to handle and provide reliable service-to-service communication, implemented as lightweight network proxies deployed alongside application code.

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. tl;dr So to return to our initial question, ‘Why?

When we added support for Istio’s service mesh in the Pipeline platform, we experienced first hand how the deployment and management of Istio can become increasingly complex.

Two weeks ago we introduced our Kafka Spotguide for Kubernetes - the easiest way to deploy and operate Apache Kafka on Kubernetes. Since then, it’s been integrated into our application and DevOps container management platform, Pipeline, among other spotguides such as Spark on Kubernetes, Zeppelin, NodeJS and Golang, just to name a few. Because we’ve already met our goal of making it easy set up a Kafka cluster on Kubernetes with just few clicks, and in less than ten minutes - provisioning and operating its entire infrastructure, both in Kubernetes and Kafka - we’ve shifted our focus to Kafka security.
