Kommentare: We are a very new customer but our experience has been good so far. They have taken a lot of headaches out of setting up a Kafka cluster. I am hopeful that this experience will carry over to production as we begin to deliver new projects using Kafka.

Vorteile: We liked that Aiven offered us a self service portal and is easy to integrate with our existing software stack. We have a number of environments in development requiring Kafka and they are able to offer us the level of flexibility we need. We are using Terraform in AWS so being able to provision everything using their Terraform provider is also beneficial to us. Setting up a cluster to the point where we are able to monitor it with our existing Prometheus is very easy to do thanks to their external integrations.

Nachteile: The documentation is lacking in some parts. Trying to set up logging to am external Elasticsearch cluster is difficult if you have your cluster secured with SSL. The terraform documentation is also lacking documentation and expects you to figure it out yourself from reading JSON.

It has been a game changer in our business

Kommentare: It saved us from the hassle to manage Kafka cluster ourselves, with a very fast response customer support

Vorteile: It provides a working out of the box Kafka with REST API, Schema Registry, and Kafka Connect. It also makes available a very powerful REST API and command line tool to manage the services. Topics ACL and per user certificates are a very good addition for any non-trivial use case.

Nachteile: Some available settings are not very well documented. Also using Kafka is not the most trivial things in the hearth. Would be good to have more detailed monitoring maybe coupled with InfluxDb that is already available in Aiven

Good, if a bit limited and expensive.

Kommentare: no more downtime!

Vorteile: It works, it is reliable. The UI is pretty good, although doesn't work in Firefox very well :'(
All in all, a good way to run kafka for some use cases.
Oh my god there's a limit on the characters for the review? you're really making me work hard for that tshirt!

Nachteile: Expensive, especially to increase storage. That is limiting, especially if you want to use Kafka for infinite durable, HA storage, which IMO is a very interesting use case. Some configs (e.g. `min.insync.replicas` = 1) are not ideal (see above). Changing them is hard (i'm told) and requires restarting the brokers, which cannot be done through the UI. Basically I wish the usecase of kafka-as-db had better support. As it stands, it's not really an option.

Hi Martino,

Thanks for the review!

Regarding customizing Kafka settings (e.g. `min.insync.replicas` = 1), Aiven now provides the ability to set some advanced Kafka (broker-side) configuration settings. This can be accomplished via the Aiven commandline client (https://github.com/aiven/aiven-client).

Here¿s an example of how to set this parameter in newer versions of Kafka.

$ avn service types -v
$ avn service update myservice -c ¿kafka_rest_config.producer_acks=2¿
# `kafka_rest_config.producer_acks¿ The number of acknowledgments the producer requires the leader to have received before considering a request complete. If set to 'all' or '-1', the leader will wait for the full set of in-sync replicas to acknowledge the record.

Hope this helps and thank you again!

Good product with some annoying wrinkles

Kommentare: I enjoy using Aiven Kafka. Hosted Kafka Connect with the option to use custom connectors and transformers would be great.

Vorteile: Aiven Kafka is generally very stable, especially now that Kafka itself is becoming more mature

Nachteile: The security model has been very broken. Making an API call to get a certificate and being given a list of all the certificates in the project is simply wrong.
Also, the UI does not always contain the same information that is output by the standard Kafka command line tooling.

Was able to get started very quickly and pushing data to a new Kafka cluster within minutes.

Vorteile: The ability to specify a specific data center in Azure to ensure it is as close as possible to the rest of our applications. How easy it is to configure in the dashboard.

Nachteile: Options for extended retention periods. We had thoughts of using Kafka data retention as our source of all historical data, but the limited retention periods were problematic. Perhaps an option to specify longer, or hook it into our own storage.

von Aiven an 16.10.2017

Thank you for your honest feedback David.

First, we'd like to apologize for not making it readily apparent that we do have this feature available.

Second, here is our help article on the available options to extend your retention periods:

http://help.aiven.io/kafka/kafka-data-retention

Third, we are currently working on a process to ensure that our clients stay abreast of the features available to them so stay tuned!

Thanks again!
