Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (Amazon MSK) now supports Apache Kafka version 3.5.1 for new and existing clusters. Apache Kafka 3.5.1 includes several bug fixes and new features that improve performance. Amazon MSK will continue to use and manage Zookeeper for quorum management in this release. For a complete list of improvements and bug fixes, see the Apache Kafka release notes for 3.5.1.
Amazon MSK is a fully managed service for Apache Kafka and Kafka Connect that makes it easier for you to build and run applications that use Apache Kafka as a data store. Amazon MSK is 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 can spend more time innovating on streaming applications and less time managing Apache Kafka clusters. To learn how to get started, see the Amazon MSK Developer Guide.
Support for Apache Kafka version 3.5.1 is now available in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.
