How to Setup A Kafka Cluster with Docker on Amazon EC2

How to Setup A Kafka Cluster with Docker on Amazon EC2

In this tutorial, we are going to setup a Kafka cluster of two nodes using Docker on Amazon EC2 instances.

In this example we are going to setup a Kafka cluster of two nodes using Amazon EC2 instances. However, even if some configuration details are peculiar to AWS, instructions described in this tutorial can be generalized very easily to larger clusters and to other deployment environments.

⚠️ WARNING ⚠️: as soon as your EC2 instances are running, your Amazon account will be billed.

Setup EC2 instances

First of all you need to setup two EC2 instances. I won’t describe here the details of how to setup an AWS account (if you still don’t have one) and EC2 instances, but you can find lots of resources online (see e.g., the official documentation).

In general, for a production environment, you should evaluate carefully:

  • the instance type (e.g., t2.large)
  • the size and type of storage (e.g., 500GB st1)

The following instructions assume that your instances are running Amazon AMI Linux. However, any other linux distro can be used.
