Cloudera Enterprise vs Kafka Manager: What are the differences?
Developers describe Cloudera Enterprise as "Enterprise Platform for Big Data". Cloudera Enterprise includes CDH, the world’s most popular open source Hadoop-based platform, as well as advanced system management and data management tools plus dedicated support and community advocacy from our world-class team of Hadoop developers and experts. On the other hand, Kafka Manager is detailed as "A tool for managing Apache Kafka, developed by Yahoo". This interface makes it easier to identify topics which are unevenly distributed across the cluster or have partition leaders unevenly distributed across the cluster. It supports management of multiple clusters, preferred replica election, replica re-assignment, and topic creation. It is also great for getting a quick bird’s eye view of the cluster.
Cloudera Enterprise and Kafka Manager are primarily classified as "Big Data as a Service" and "Message Queue" tools respectively.
Some of the features offered by Cloudera Enterprise are:
- Unified – one integrated system, bringing diverse users and application workloads to one pool of data on common infrastructure

On the other hand, Kafka Manager provides the following key features:
- Manage multiple clusters
- Easy inspection of cluster state (topics, brokers, replica distribution, partition distribution)
- Run preferred replica election
