Shared storage, no data replication when scaling up
In shared storage architecture, partition data is fully stored in S3, enabling the cluster to scale out without the need for data replication to handle sudden traffic spikes. In contrast, Apache Kafka requires significant bandwidth for data replication after scaling out, limiting its ability to quickly respond to sudden traffic spikes.
Transition from human governance to autonomous Kafka
In the past, software architecture relied on manual stability protection measures to ensure business continuity, such as capacity assessment, stability plans, and traffic throttling. Today, leveraging cloud-native technologies enables automatic scaling, automatic load balancing, and automatic fault recovery, making systems more autonomous and efficient.
