This is a snap that bundles Kafka together with other tools of its ecosystem in order to be used in Charmed Operators, providing automated operations management from day 0 to day 2 on the Apache Kafka event streaming platform deployed on top of a Virtual Machine cluster and K8s cluster. It is an open source, end-to-end, production ready data platform on top of cloud native technologies.
This bundle together with its charm comes with features such as:
Fault-tolerance, replication, scalability and high-availability out-of-the-box.
SASL/SCRAM auth for Broker-Broker and Client-Broker authenticaion enabled by default.
Access control management supported with user-provided ACL lists.
Swap out openSUSE_Leap_15.5 for openSUSE_Leap_15.4 or openSUSE_Tumbleweed if you’re using a different version of openSUSE.

sudo zypper install snapd

Additionally, enable and start both the snapd and the snapd.apparmor services with the following commands:
