Introduction

Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (Amazon MSK) is a completely managed service that enables you to build and run Apache Kafka applications to process streaming data. Amazon MSK provides control-plane operations, such as creating, updating, and deleting clusters. It lets the user use Apache Kafka data-plane operations, such as those for the production and consumption of data. It enables open-source versions of Apache Kafka. This means existing applications, tooling, and plugins from partners and the Apache Kafka community are supported without requiring changes to application code. One can use Amazon MSK to create clusters that use any of the Apache Kafka versions listed under Supported Apache Kafka versions.

Amazon MSK Configuration

Amazon MSK supports a default configuration for brokers and Apache ZooKeeper nodes. One can also create custom configurations and use them to develop additional MSK clusters or update existing collections. An MSK configuration consists of a set of properties and co-related values.

Default Amazon MSK Configuration

Amazon MSK creates and uses a default configuration with the values when users create an MSK cluster without mentioning a custom MSK configuration. Amazon MSK uses the defaults associated with your version of Apache Kafka for properties that aren't mentioned. 

MSK Serverless

MSK Serverless is a cluster type for Amazon MSK that makes it possible for you to run Apache Kafka without managing and scaling cluster capacity. It automatically provisions and scales capacity while driving the sub-classes in users' topics, so one can stream data without thinking about perfect-sizing or scaling clusters. MSK Serverless offers a throughput-based cost model, so one pays only for what they use. Consider using a serverless collection if your applications need the on-demand streaming capacity that scales up and down automatically.

MSK Serverless is perfectly compatible with Apache Kafka, so users can use any compatible client applications to produce and consume data.

MSK Connect

MSK Connect is a feature of Amazon MSK that makes it easy for developers to stream data to and from their Apache Kafka clusters. MSK Connect uses Kafka Connect 2.7.1, an open-source framework for connecting Apache Kafka clusters with external systems such as databases, search indexes, and file systems. With MSK Connect, one can deploy completely managed connectors built for Kafka Connect that move data into or pull data from popular data stores such as Amazon S3 and Amazon OpenSearch Service. One can deploy connectors developed by 3rd parties like Debezium for streaming changelogs from databases into an Apache Kafka cluster or deploying an existing connector with no code changes. Connectors perfectly scale to adjust for changes in load, and users pay only for the resources they occupy.

Use source connectors to extract data from external systems into their topics. We can export data from our topics to external systems with sink connectors.

MSK Connect supports connectors for any Apache Kafka cluster with connectivity to an Amazon VPC, whether an MSK cluster or an independently hosted Apache Kafka cluster.
