Introducing Zilla

APIs for Apache Kafka¬ģ

Securely interface web apps, IoT clients, and microservices to Apache Kafka¬ģ via declaratively defined, stateless APIs.

ūü¶é Stream Data Anywhere.

Zilla is a multi-protocol, event-native proxy. Deploy it in front of Apache Kafka¬ģ and declaratively define REST, SSE, MQTT & gRPC API entry points that map to Kafka topics & services. Non-Kafka apps & microservices can now directly consume & produce event streams via their own native APIs ‚ÄĒ no need to deploy and manage custom integration code, Kafka Connect¬ģ or any other intermediaries.

A Disjointed Interface

For apps and clients that can’t natively interface to Kafka event streams, a combination of Kafka Connect and intermediary web services or brokers is needed. This leads to increased latency, unnecessary data replication, a wider security surface area and an overall disjointed interface to event-driven architectures.

Maximized
Kafka Investment

Kafka's performance & resilience benefits extended across the entire application stack.

Offloaded
DevOps & TCO

Heavy Kafka integration middleware replaced by a single, stateless API layer.

Increased
Developer Agility

Developers across teams accessing event-streams via their own APIs of choice.

Streamlined
Security Footprint

Centralized authorization & authentication of all non-Kafka clients.

Zilla Solutions

Use Zilla for application integration, modernization and development.

Event Mesh

Interface REST and gRPC services to event-streams with app specific API declarations, enabling them as first-class participants inside an event-driven architecture. Achieve a CQRS event-sourcing design pattern with minimal effort.

Event-driven Web & Mobile

Leverage Kafka as an asynchronous backend for web and mobile clients. Extend event-streams across the internet or ingest end-user data directly into Kafka. Build live dashboards, geotracking, in-app chat and more, all without WebSocket servers or third-party pub/sub services.

Kafka DMZ

Expose event-streams to external client applications and services, securely and at scale. Go beyond a synchronous HTTP interface for your partner integration strategy.

IoT Ingest & Control

Reduce redundant replication and lag by connecting MQTT clients directly to Kafka without intermediary MQTT brokers. Clients can publish and subscribe, which streamlines remote control and configuration.

Run the examples to see Zilla in action.

No Code Changes Required

Declare Kafka API entry points in minutes...and in a single config!
