Message Queue for Apache Kafka provides two instance editions: Standard Edition and Professional Edition. You can select the instance edition based on your migration needs.

  • Standard Edition
    • Traffic specification = Total traffic in the cluster/3 (for optimization)
    • Disk capacity = Average traffic × Storage duration × 3 (replicas)
    • Number of topics: depends on the actual business demand.
      Note We recommend that you optimize topics to reduce costs when you migrate your data to the cloud.
  • Professional Edition
    • Traffic specification = Total traffic in the cluster/3 (for optimization)
    • Disk capacity = Average traffic × Storage duration × n (replicas)
      Note When you create a topic, n is 1 for cloud storage and 3 for local storage. For more information about the comparison between cloud storage and local storage, see Storage engine comparison.
    • Number of topics: depends on the actual business demand.
