What is the Conduktor Gateway
Conduktor Gateway is a vendor agnostic Apache Kafka proxy.
When using Conduktor Gateway you can more easily follow the path to a mature Kafka set-up, avoiding the pitfalls and the common challenges that come with this progression. Conduktor Gateway gives you the power to add structure, organisation, enhanced functionality, and therefore confidence in your Kafka environment. Gateway is fully Apache Kafka protocol compliant and vendor agnostic, it supports the use of Kafka wherever that Kafka is hosted.
To get started please review the System Requirements,hardware requirements and Kafka requirements as shown in our documentation here.
Running Conduktor Gateway
In its most simple form Gateway can be run from a simple Docker run command with the credentials to connect to you Kafka cluster. However, Gateway needs to interact with your clients and your Kafka to get the most from it.
