You can now provision up to 30 brokers within a Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (Amazon MSK) cluster without a limit increase, making it easier for customers with high traffic or storage requirements to expand or provision new clusters on demand. You can request a limit increase in the AWS Support Center if you need more than 30 brokers within a cluster.  

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 means you can 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 the Amazon MSK developer guide to get started.
