Is it possible to specify data center information to Kafka such that all replicas for a given partition are not in the same data center? We have a cluster that spans 2 data centers and I'd like to ensure that we're covered if we lose one of them.
This means it's not recommended to spread a cluster of brokers over more than one data center? Are there specific timing or performance issues related to this? up. You can instead set up a mirror of a cluster in another DC.
