“Adobe chose Calisti’s Koperator as the best fit solution for its requirements and was able to migrate Apache Kafka to Kubernetes across multiple clouds. Our decision was driven by our need for a multi-cloud solution that was elastic, flexible, and able to handle our scale of 300 billion events per day & multi-petabytes of data storage.”

Why Calisti for Apache Kafka?

Simplified Kafka cluster Management

Operate production-grade Kafka clusters with automated install of all Kafka components, easy declarative configuration of Kafka clusters including brokers, and simplified day-2 operations like rolling upgrades, disaster recovery, and alert-based auto scaling.

Traffic Encryption without Performance Penalty

Calisti offers out of the box mutual transport layer security (mTLS) encryption of cluster traffic including Kafka data traffic, and authenticated communication, all while causing minimal impact to Kafka cluster performance.

Protocol-Aware Integrated Kafka Observability

Easy to root-cause runtime errors in Kafka clusters using metrics, events, logs, and traces that are shown on integrated Grafana dashboards for both Kubernetes and Kafka components such as brokers, topics, consumer groups, and access control lists (ACLs).
