Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (Amazon MSK) now supports Apache Kafka version 2.2.1 for new clusters. With the addition of EU (Stockholm), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), and Asia Pacific (Seoul), Amazon MSK is now offered in 13 AWS Regions.

Amazon MSK is a fully managed service for Apache Kafka that makes it easy for you to build and run applications that use Apache Kafka as a data store. Amazon MSK is 100% compatible with Apache Kafka, which enables you to quickly migrate your existing Apache Kafka workloads to Amazon MSK with confidence or build new ones from scratch. With Amazon MSK, you spend more time innovating on applications and less time managing clusters. 

Visit Amazon MSK for more details, and refer to Apache Kafka release notes for 2.2.1, 2.2.0, and 2.1.1 to learn about the improvements and fixes that are included in this new release.
