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

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.

Kommentare: 1. Kafka easy to maintain and easy to use, easy to scale up

Vorteile: 1. easy UI and scalability.
easy to use kafka features
easy and approachable team and easy to see logs.

Nachteile: 1. documentation is not proper. no steps mentioned anywhere for connectivity of aiven with other cloud or on premise clusters.
2. no troubleshooting steps available
3. very tough to use if face errors, as there is no way to go out as documents are not avilable in detail.

Hi Neeraj,

We appreciate your feedback!

Just wanted to let you know that a limited amount (typically 1-2 days worth) of Aiven service logs are provided in the ¿Logs¿ tab for your service in the Aiven console. If you wish logs from a longer duration, you can use Logs Integration offered by Aiven.

More information about this can be found at:

Thanks again!

Kommentare: Creating a data platform for tracking user interaction events as well as creating pub-sub architecture for service communication.

Vorteile: The UI/UX makes it extremely simple to setup new clusters and makes it extremely clear as to what you're spinning up, it's state, etc. Integration between services is also very intuitive.

Nachteile: I know it's a best practice beyond SSL/HTTPS, but enforcing basic auth is a bit of a pain when you're first starting a proof-of-concept. And believe it or not adding basic auth credential providers in some languages/packages isn't as clear as it should be.
