Poll Results: Kafka Version Distribution

The results for Apache Kafka version distribution poll are in.  Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote!

The distribution pie chart is below, but we could summarize it as follows:

  • Only about 5% of Kafka 0.7.x users didn’t indicate they will upgrade to 0.8.2.x in the next 2 months
  • Only about 14% of Kafka 0.8.1.x users didn’t indicate they will upgrade to 0.8.2.x in the next 2 months
  • Over 42% of Kafka users are already using 0.8.2.x!
  • Over 80% of Kafka users say they will be using 0.8.2.x within the next 2 months!

It’s great to see Kafka users being so quick to migrate to the latest version of Kafka!  We’re extra happy to see such quick 0.8.2 adoption because we put a lot of effort into improving Kafka metric, as well as making all 100+ Kafka metrics available via SPM Kafka 0.8.2 monitoring a few weeks ago, right after Kafka 0.8.2 was released.
