Kafka is an open-source distributed event and stream-processing platform built to process demanding real-time data feeds. It is inherently scalable, with high throughput and availability.
Currently, you can only create three-node Kafka clusters. We support the following Basic and General Purpose Droplets for use in Kafka clusters:
|Droplet Type||CPU||3-Node Cluster Cost||vCPUs||RAM||Disk|
|Basic||Shared||$147 per month||3||6 GiB||120 GiB|
|Basic||Shared||$294 per month||6||12 GiB||150 GiB|
|General Purpose||Dedicated||$597 per month||6||24 GiB||150 GiB|
|General Purpose||Dedicated||$1197 per month||12||48 GiB||300 GiB|
Traffic to and from Managed Databases does not count against your bandwidth billing transfer allowance.
