Compatibility for Apache Kafka.

The Apache Kafka extension for Jikkou utilizes the Kafka Admin Client which is compatible with any Kafka infrastructure, such as :

  • Aiven
  • Apache Kafka
  • Confluent Cloud
  • MSK
  • Redpanda
  • etc.

In addition, Kafka Protocol has a “bidirectional” client compatibility policy. In other words, new clients can talk to old servers, and old clients can talk to new servers.
