Hey all 👋 Has anyone used Strimzi to run Kafka on Kubernetes? I’m looking for some feedback… Were there any show stoppers, or significant hurdles along the way?

I have used it in 2018-2022, and the experience was pretty good. There were few bugs back then w.r.t. permissions and race-conditions, but believe it to be more mature since then. One of the thing to watch out would be fast release cycle and making sure you are up-to-date, given the releases were a bit bug prone back then (being v0.X releases).

Thanks!
Do you know perhaps is it possible to use KafkaConnector CRDs, but instead of running the connect jobs it in a self-managed KafkaConnect cluster (managed by Strimzi), run it in the Confluent Kafka Connect cluster?

No, I am not aware about it and the knowledge can be outdated. The community and maintainers were quite active in their slack, you can probably check there once.
