8.7 Embedded Kafka Deprecation
In 8.7 release notes, it is mentioned like "Starting in Pega Platform 8.7, the use of the internal Kafka cluster as the Stream service is deprecated. On-premises systems that have been updated from earlier versions of Pega Platform can continue to use Kafka in embedded mode. However, to ensure future compatibility, do not create any new environments using embedded Kafka"
Following are the queries that need clarification:
- What exactly On-premisis systems mean? Are client managed clouds come under this?
- While updating from 8.4 to 8.7 in client managed cloud/private cloud, Is embedded kafka available in 8.7 after updation? (or) Integrating with external kafka is mandatory?
