Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (Amazon MSK) can now automatically expand your Apache Kafka cluster storage using Application Auto Scaling policies. Auto-scaling policies enable you to set and control both the target disk utilization and a maximum scaling limit. Your Amazon MSK cluster storage will automatically expand by the required amount when the utilization threshold that you set is exceeded. This allows your cluster to automatically expand storage when needed without constant self-monitoring. 

Amazon MSK is a fully managed service for Apache Kafka that makes it easy for you to build and run applications that use Apache Kafka as a data store. Amazon MSK is 100% compatible with Apache Kafka, which enables you to quickly migrate your existing Apache Kafka workloads to Amazon MSK with confidence or build new ones from scratch. With Amazon MSK, you spend more time innovating on applications and less time managing clusters. To learn how to get started, see the Amazon MSK Developer Guide
