Many organisations are considering moving core server workloads like Apache
Kafka away from Red Hat Enterprise Linux. For those looking for an alternative,
supported Linux distribution, Ubuntu is a compelling choice. This short paper
outlines considerations for migrating from RHEL to Ubuntu.

The Ubuntu platform makes a viable alternative to Red Hat Enterprise Linux
(RHEL) for enterprise Kafka workloads. Kafka deployments can be migrated to
Ubuntu with few-to-minimal adaptations, with support for Kafka on Ubuntu
available from a number of vendors – including Canonical, the publisher of Ubuntu.

This short paper outlines considerations for migrating from RHEL to Ubuntu:

  • Differences in the base operating system platform and its packaging formats
  • Systems management
  • Migration of Kafka workloads to Ubuntu
  • Continuity of existing operations practices and automation
