Installing Confluent Platform On Windows

Niels Berglund shows how to install Confluent Platform (the Confluent branded version of Apache Kafka) on a Windows machine using the Windows Subsystem for Linux:

WSL is primarily aimed at developers, and it allows you to run Linux environments directly on Windows in a native format and without the overhead of a virtual machine. Let us retake a look at that statement: run Linux environments directly on Windows in a native format. Yes native format, WSL is not a UNIX-like environment like Cygwin, which wraps non-Windows functionality in Win32 system calls but it serves Linux programs as special, isolated minimal processes (pico-processes) attached to kernel-mode pico-providers. If you want to read all the “gory” details about WSLWindows Subsystem for Linux Overview gives you an excellent introduction.

Surprisingly, it’s pretty easy—I would have expected some strange compatibility issues.

The larger the file the more notable is the performance gain. […]
