Koperator (formerly called Banzai Cloud Kafka operator) is a core part of Calisti’s Streaming Data Manager, that helps you create production-ready Apache Kafka cluster on Kubernetes, with scaling, rebalancing, and alerts based self healing. While the Koperator itself is an open-source project, the Streaming Data Manager extends the functionality of the Koperator with commercial features (for example, declarative ACL handling, built-in monitoring, and multiple ways of disaster recovery). Read a detailed comparison of Streaming Data Manager and the Koperator.
