Written by Elin Vinka

The Kafka REST Proxy allows you to receive metadata from a cluster and produce and consume messages over a simple REST API. In this guide, CloudKarafka demonstrates how to integrate the REST Proxy with your hosted Apache Kafka cluster from CloudKarafka.

Benefits of using REST Proxy with CloudKarafka

CloudKarafka offers Apache Kafka as a service, meaning that we provide users with a two-minute server setup of Apache Kafka followed by management and support. However, the usage of Apache Kafka varies greatly. To help you wade through all the information, CloudKarafka presents this guide on how to start using Rest Proxy with CloudKarafka.

An application that doesn't support the Kafka-client or is missing a script can benefit from using Kafka REST Proxy. REST Proxy also allows for configurations of producer and consumer settings within the cluster.
