At Conduktor, we’re all about helping teams everywhere to unleash the power of Apache Kafka. One of the most common stumbling blocks users encounter on their Kafka journey is getting up and running.

Starting a Kafka cluster locally could be really painful. Each operating system has its own particularities. Some technologies like Docker provide solutions for managing processes, but it isn't installed by default and doesn't work out of the box on Windows.

For those starting out with Apache Kafka or those who regularly need to start Kafka clusters locally, this can be a challenge. With that in mind, we’ve just launched something that will change the game when it comes to creating your Kafka clusters.

Now, Conduktor allows you to start a local Kafka cluster in just a couple of clicks. This powerful new feature will get you up and running with Apache Kafka faster than ever.

  • Works with any Kafka version.

  • Comes with Schema Registry built-in

  • It's included in the free version of Conduktor

I’m hosting a webinar on Monday March 28th. In 15 minutes, I’ll show you how you can start a Kafka cluster in a couple of clicks and I’ll also tell you a bit about some of the other cool stuff we are building for the Apache Kafka community.

This is not to be missed and places are limited so book your spot now.

We aim to accelerate Kafka projects delivery by making developers and organizations more efficient with Kafka.
