      Description

      This is a ticket for creating an official apache/kafka-connect Docker image. 

      Does this need a KIP?  -  I don't think so. This would be a new feature, not any API change. 

      Why is this needed?

      1. Kafka Connect is stateless. I believe this is why a Kafka image is not created?
      2. It scales much more easily with Docker and orchestrators. It operates much like any other serverless / "microservice" web application 
      3. People struggle with deploying it because it is packaged with Kafka , which leads some to believe it needs to run with Kafka on the same machine. 

      I think there is separate ticket for creating an official Docker image for Kafka but clearly none exist. I reached out to Confluent about this, but heard nothing yet.

       

      Zookeeper already has one , btw
