You can now reboot individual brokers within your Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (Amazon MSK) cluster by using the Reboot Broker API. The Reboot Broker API enables you to test the resiliency of your data producers and consumers by simulating MSK service maintenance such as automated patching or the effect a version upgrade has on a MSK broker. Visit the Amazon MSK API Reference for information on how to use this API.

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

Amazon MSK is available in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) region, operated by Sinnet, and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) region, operated by NWCD.
