What is the full form of MSK

Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (Amazon MSK)

Amazon MSK is a fully managed service that makes it easy for you to build and run applications that use Apache Kafka to process streaming data. Apache Kafka is an open source platform for building real-time streaming data pipelines and applications. With Amazon MSK, you can use native Apache Kafka APIs to populate data lakes, stream changes to and from databases, and support machine learning and analytics applications.

Apache Kafka clusters are difficult to set up, scale and manage in production If you run Apache Kafka yourself, you need provisioning servers, you need to configure Apache Kafka manually, need to replace servers in the event of failure, need to create server patches and upgrades, need the cluster Build for high availability, need to ensure that data is stored and secured for a long time, need to set up monitoring and alarms, and carefully plan scaling events to support load changes. Amazon MSK makes it easy to build and run production applications on Apache Kafka without having to know how to manage the Apache Kafka infrastructure. Spend less time managing infrastructure and more time building applications.

With just a few clicks in the Amazon MSK console, you can create highly available Apache Kafka clusters, with settings and configurations based on best practices for deploying Apache Kafka. Amazon MSK automatically makes your Apache Kafka clusters available and manages them. Amazon MSK constantly monitors the health of the clusters and replaces unhealthy nodes with no downtime for your application. In addition, Amazon MSK secures your Apache Kafka cluster by encrypting the data at rest.
