The amount of Kafka instances in your clusters. The minimum amount of dedicated Kafka instances is 3 to enable a high availability setup. Depending on the amount of Kafka instances you choose here, we create up to 5 Zookeeper instances.

3.3. Kafka space

The amount of available disk space for each Kafka instance to persist data in GiB.

3.4. Kafka memory

The amount of RAM per Kafka instance to match the performance you need in GiB.

3.5. Default Replication Factor

The Replication Factor for each topic you create when calling the Kafka cluster. We recommend to set this factor to at least 3, so that you do not suffer data loss.

3.6 Data Throughput

Data throughput refers to the amount of data a system or process can handle in a specific time period. This refers to your personal needs for your kafka cluster.

Based on your configuration, we calculate the needed cluster size and loadbalancer settings.
