Amazon MSK Connect is now available, enabling you to run fully managed Kafka Connect clusters with Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (Amazon MSK). With a few clicks, MSK Connect allows you to easily deploy, monitor, and scale connectors that move data in and out of Apache Kafka and Amazon MSK clusters from external systems such as databases, file systems, and search indices. MSK Connect eliminates the need to provision and maintain cluster infrastructure. Connectors scale automatically in response to increases in usage and you pay only for the resources you use. With full compatibility with Kafka Connect, it is easy to migrate workloads without code changes. MSK Connect will support both Amazon MSK-managed and self-managed Apache Kafka clusters.

You can get started with MSK Connect from the Amazon MSK console or the AWS CLI. MSK Connect is available in all commercial AWS regions where Amazon MSK is available. To learn more, visit the product page and the Amazon MSK Developer Guide.
