🦎 Zilla Edge & Service Proxy

Zilla is a multi-protocol, event-native proxy. Deploy it in front of Apache Kafka® 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 — no need to deploy and manage custom integration code, Kafka Connect® 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.

Kafka Investment

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

DevOps & TCO

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

Developer Agility

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

Security Footprint

Centralized authorization & authentication of all non-Kafka clients.

Powering APIs at Data Driven Organizations

Zilla’s extensive protocol support, integrations with AWS services such as Glue Schema Registry and Secrets Manager, as well as robust logging capabilities, gives me confidence it can be a one-stop solution for all of our external MSK integration needs.
