You can now create Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (Amazon MSK) clusters clusters that span three AWS Availability Zones (AZs) in the South America (São Paulo) and Canada (Central) AWS regions. When Apache Kafka topics are replicated across three AZs, customers maximize fault tolerance and Apache Kafka availability.

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. To learn how to get started, see the Amazon MSK Developer Guide.

For Amazon MSK region availability, refer to the AWS Region Table.
