Compatibility of running Kafka/zookeeper on windows platform

Hi Team,

A production application is running on windows platform. Now the same application wants to consume/use Kafka/zookeeper.

As the application is hosted in windows, can we deploy/use Confluent Kafka with Zookeeper in windows platform?

It’s for production purposes.

Is it compatible & recommend to run Kafka/zookeer on windows?

hey @zohebk8s

welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

I think the easiest option would be to run it with Docker on your windows system.

In general Kafka is not intended to run natively on Windows.
Would not recommend to run Kafka for production purposes on Windows.
