Hands-On Lab

Kafka can be deployed in mutliple data centers in an "Active-Active", "Active-Passive", or centralized architecture. In this hands-on lab, we simulate an active-passive architecture in which data from one cluster is replicated to another cluster using a tool called Replicator. Replicator, like MirrorMaker, allows you to preserve topic configuration in the source cluster while replicating the messages from one cluster to another.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
