https://www.confluent.io/blog/kafka-without-zookeeper-a-sneak-peek/

Highlight: ""bc of the complexity of managing two separate systems (Kafka & Zookeeper) users felt they had to choose btwn scale or the ease of getting started.... This is no longer the case. KIP-500 & KRaft mode provide a lightweight way to get started w/ Kafka or use it as an alternative to monolithic brokers like ActiveMQ or RabbitMQ. The lightweight, single-process deployment is also better suited to edge scenarios and those that use lightweight hardware."
